>TSTI Torah-Fest Program With Clients From JESPY House Featured In NJJN


(This is an excerpt from an NJJN article)
Letter by Letter, a Torah unfurls in South Orange
by Robert Wiener of the New Jersey Jewish News– Nov. 18, 2009
Cautiously, Lily Moretz placed her right hand on top of Rabbi Zerach Greenfield’s. Then, their hands moving together carefully, they inscribed a single Hebrew letter on a piece of parchment.
Moritz, a client of JESPY House, was one of some 20 people from there and other programs of the Jewish Service for the Developmentally Disabled came to Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel in South Orange on Nov. 11 to help write a Torah scroll.
Their combined effort will be repeated hundreds of times in the coming year, as the Reform congregation allows members and guests to join in the hands-on effort they call their Torah Project.
