A Sefer Torah for Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai

Mishan LaCholeh embarks on a new endeavor – writing a special Sefer Torah (Torah scroll) for the sake of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, to be donated to his holy gravesite.


The Sefer Torah will be dedicated for the success of the entire Jewish nation, the complete recovery of all those who are ill and in the merit of all those who died without children.

Our goal is to complete the writing of the Sefer Torah by Sivan 5774 (June 2014) – just in time for Mishan LaCholeh's 30th birthday! (Details will follow.) It is our way of offering praise and gratitude to G-d for all those blessed years in which we merited to be at our brothers' side, offering crucial assistance to those who need it.

Indeed, it is a momentous occasion for us at Mishan LaCholeh, one that we could never have reached without our wonderful donors and their kindhearted contributions.

With prayer to G-d that we will be able to continue our holy work assisting others in a most respectable way, we hope that this Sefer Torah, written for the sake and honor of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, will be the catalyst for much good. Surely Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai will pray on behalf of all those who participate in this tremendous endeavor.

"Rav Yirmiya said in the name of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai: I can exempt the entire nation of the [harsh] judgment. Just as G-d is for all, so too Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai is for all... his Torah is a shield for us, it lights our eyes. He will [beseech G-d] our our behalf; our master Bar Yochai."The lavish Hachnasat Sefer Torah ceremony (bringing the Sefer Torah to the synagogue amid a parade of music and dancing) will be followed by a lavish meal, joined by all those who participated in the writing of the Sefer Torah, as well as various Rabbinical leaders, ADMORIM (Hassidic leaders) and public figures.
