Dear Friend,

We are very excited to announce the launch of the Chabad of Olney CommUnity Torah Campaign, in memory of Rene Elie and Grazia Safi.

A new Torah scroll is a sign of a vibrant community – a healthy, robust, and flourishing community that is brimming with Jewish pride. Here at Chabad of Olney we are writing a new chapter in our history: We are writing our community’s first Torah scroll.

We invite you to join in writing history for our bright Jewish future, by generously participating in the Chabad of Olney CommUnity Torah. Please refer to the Dedications page to make your selection, honoring yourself and your family, or to eternalize the memory of a loved one.

We look forward to completing and welcoming the new Torah in the near future, please stay tuned.

With endless gratitude,

Rabbi Bentzy and Devorah Stolik
