The Baitz family dedicated a new Torah on Sunday in memory of their father R’ Aharon Baitz.
R’ Aharon was very involved with the Ksav Sofer Shul in Crown Heights, which is in close proximity to his house on Empire Blvd., and organized the weekly farbrengens there. As a successful businessman, R’ Aron utilized his money to do many acts of chessed and distribute large sums of tzedaka. He built a beautiful family with many children and grandchildren.
The writing of the Torah’s final letters was held in the Ksav Sofer Shul, where R’ Aharon dedicated so much of his time and energy.
The Torah was then escorted with a festive procession down the Crown Heights streets, and the Siyum concluded with joyous hakafos.
