Congregation Etz Chaim NWA www.etzchaimnwa.org is sponsoring Project 613 – a community effort to restore an orphaned and damaged Torah that is approximately 200 years old and was recovered in Prague after the Holocaust. Once restored the Torah will be entrusted to Congregation Etz Chaim in Bentonville Arkansas where it will be part of worship and education.
I have given as a founding member (11 yrs) of this growing community. I have been blessed deeply by this experience and so fortunate to have helped create a Jewish life for my son who will be a bar mitzvah May/2016. If all goes well, our son will be the first to read from this restored Torah. An honor our family will never forget. Continuity of our faith and tradition has been of upmost importance to my husband and I in establishing this synagogue and now as so symbolically represented in the restoration of this Torah.
