The Finck family of Crown Heights dedicated a new Sefer Torah in memory of their father R’ Shmuel Finck a”h.

Friends and family gathered at the Finck family home to write the final letters in the new Sefer Torah. The siyum was followed by a parade and hakafos at Lubavitch Yeshiva.

Reb Shmuel was a tremendous baal chesed and tzadakah in Crown Heights. He had a special passion for recruiting bright young university students and helping them attend yeshiva. Together with others, he set up a scholarship program for students to at Yeshiva.

  1. I am sure R’ Shmuel Yacov was watching with great Simcha. The Fincks are a wonderful family, and the Kovod they display for R’ Shmuel Yacov could not be summed up any better than by this gorgeous Hachnosas Sefer Torah. May R’ Shmuel Yacov continue to receive much Nachas from all of the Fincks!
