The first ever Abayudaya Birthright group arrives at Ben Gurion Airport, organized and made possible by Marom Olami!
Monday, August 27th will marks a special occasion–lead by the Abayudaya Birthright group, a Hachnasaat Sefer Torah to Ezrat Yisrael is planned. The festive march from from Sha’ar Ha’ashpot (Dung Gate) to Ezrat Yisrael will include music, singing and dancing and culminates at a joyous Shacharit prayer service.
The Sefer Torah was donated by Rabbi Samuel Kieffer of Temple Beth Am, Margate, Florida, and we could not think of a better occasion, or a better group, to have it brought to the Kotel. It’s sure to be a moving celebration of our Masorti values put into practice– something that all parts of the Masorti/Conservative movement, in Israel and worldwide, have supported for many years.
Stay tuned as we’ll be posting photos, videos and more news about this exciting event.
