A new Sefer Torah currently being written by friends and supporters of US Ambassador to Israel Mr. David M. Friedman and his wife Devorah, was brought Tuesday to 770 Kfar Chabad for writing the final letters.

The ambassador was joined by close friends and associates who inscribed letters in the Sefer Torah in the exact replica of the Rebbe’s room.

Rabbi Zalman Wolowik, Shliach to the Five Towns and a close friend and confidant of Ambassador Friedman, hosted a live Zoom conversation joined by Vice Chairman of Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, Chief Rabbi of Russia Rabbi Berel Lazar, and Rabbi Mendy Kotlarsky, director of Merkos 302.

The private ceremony, which took place just two weeks before the end of the Trump’s presidency, was attended by Aguch Chairman Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Aharonov, director of 770 R’ Menachem Latter, and editor of Kfar Chabad magazine R’ Menachem Cohen, and others.
