Even for Rabbi Moshe Klein, a veteran Sofer Stam from Crown Heights who has been writing Sefer Torahs for over four decades, this past Sunday was a most memorable one.
In a single day, he celebrated the completion of 4 Sefer Torahs.
The day began quietly at 9 am, with Rabbi Klein completing the first Torah in the solitude of his office on Kingston Avenue. He then carefully wrapped and sent off the precious new scroll to California. A member of a Chabad center commissioned it in honor of his son’s Bar Mitzvah this Shabbos.
Rabbi Klein then headed out for a Siyum at the F.R.E.E. of Brighton Beach – The Jewish Russian Community Center which is led by Shliach Rabbi Hirshel Okunov. The community was on hand to witness the final letters being written and participate in the dancing.
Just half past noon, Rabbi Klein was already at a large and moving celebration in Queens, NY, at a special Torah dedication in the merit of two young boys who are in need of a refuah shelaima.
The Torah was dedicated by Shalom and Navah Kvital, who are known to Crown Heights residents as the longtime owners of Union Car Service on Kingston Avenue.
They dedicated the new Torah to their 2 children, 14-year-old Netanel Chaim ben Navah and Ohr Hachaim Nissan ben Navah, who is celebrating his Bar Mitzvah this week.
Over 200 relatives and friends of the Kvitals joyously celebrated the milestone event, with prayers for the long life and health of the two boys, both of whom have the rare genetic disease SMA-2.
Following that, Rabbi Klein headed back to Brooklyn, for another Siyum. This one was at Chabad of Sheepshead Bay led by Shluchim Rabbi Shlomo and Tzippy Cohen. The Torah was made possible by Mr. Vigdorchik, a generous member of the Chabad House.
After such a whirlwind day, Rabbi Klein was understandably exhausted, but he was thrilled with the excitement of the day.
“For me, it is such a zechus during these dark and difficult times, to be a part of bringing so much light and happiness into this world,” he told COLlive.com.
