The Saidman-Greenwald Torah
This magnificent Torah was dedicated over a decade ago in a beautiful ceremony with the intent of generating donations to the original Saidman-Greenwald Education Endowment through the dedication of words, Aliyot, Torah portions, and Books of the Torah.

Continuing the Gift
Dr. Lester Saidman, of blessed memory, is surrounded by children watching the scribe finish this sacred project. The caption from the original booklet reminds us that we have an obligation to hand the Torah down through the generations. With your help, this Mitzvah will continue to be a reality as future generations enjoy the benefits of this wonderful endowment.
