Chabad of Longmont invites the community to join them on Sunday June 14th to welcome and consecrate the “newest addition to our family and yours” — a precious Torah scroll — donated by Ken and Jenine Rubin and Family in loving memory of Joyce and Manny Rubin. The party starts at 11:00 am at Thompson Park, 420 Bross St. in Longmont.
In Jewish tradition, a Torah is welcomed to the community as a new bride and groom are celebrated by their families and friends. The Torah is introduced under a traditional marriage canopy (chuppah) and is accompanied by singing, dancing and festive meal. Every community member is an integral part of the celebration — just as a family member is to a wedding.
