A Torah writing project is a major fundraising opportunity, fosters broad community participation, provides inspirational and educational programming and is a most memorable experience. In addition, it provides a wonderful opportunity to fulfill a mitzvah both on a personal and communal level and brings a new Torah into the community.
The Torah writing project is the ultimate project for synagogues, organizations and institutions of all affiliations!
part of Jewish history!
Plan educational programming for youths and/or adults during the writing of the Torah. Tailor the programming to your needs and wishes. Learn about the Torah, how it is made and written and ask the sofer any questions you have about the scribal arts. Hold the various tools and materials used by the sofer including the feather quill, sinew string, and cow's tail (not to keep the flies away!). STAM is available to assist with organizing the programming and to be an active part of it or if you choose to bring in sofrim, scribes, closer to home, to run the educational seminars and workshops we will work with them, if necessary.
Watch the sofer write with a quill and natural ink in the time honored fashion. See history in the making.
Stand beside the sofer as he scribes the final letters. Symbolically participate in its completion and feel like an active participant in this monumental accomplishment.
Partake in the joyous completion of your Torah scroll and dance and sing with it in the traditional march under the canopy as a bride being led to her groom. Celebrate the inauguration of your Torah into its new home as it joins with the other Torahs in the holy ark.
Be part of the writing of the Torah that one day you, your child or your grandchild may read from.
Our first and foremost priority is to provide you with the Torah scroll that meets your budget and needs. Upon choosing the Torah we will assist you in organizing and implementing a successful Torah writing program.
STAM prides itself as an excellent source for the purchase of a Torah scroll.
We have new and refurbished Torahs to meet all budgets and in varying stages of writing and restoration. You can commission a sofer to write a new one from scratch or acquire one that is in the midst of being written or a Torah that is already complete.
Our prices are excellent and we have reasonable terms.
With STAM there is no need to shop elsewhere as we care for all your Torah needs- cover, rollers, belt, crown, breastplate and pointer- from our catalog or custom made. Our prices are unbeatable as we work direct with the manufacturers and artists!
Acquire our "Tree of Life" program kit. It includes professional samples of fliers, advertisements, certificates and forms. In addition, it contains numerous dedication/sponsorship proposals and suggested pricing and gimmick, gift and winning ideas to make this project a financial and communal success. Much time and expense has gone into the development of the kit and will save you considerable time, headache and money. If you choose to acquire your Torah through STAM you will receive the kit at no charge otherwise the kit is available for purchase. However, if you choose to acquire your Torah from us after purchasing the kit you will receive a full credit towards your Torah purchase! Click for samples and to order.
