Torahs in Hand, Shluchim Return to Their Makom Hashlichus

As the International Kinus Hashluchim ends, the shluchim return home with their new Torahs from this year’s historic Siyum of 36 Torahs donated to shluchim in remote cities.

This year’s kinus featured the historic Siyum of no less than thirty-six Sifrei Torah, boldly pledged by Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky. From their inception, these Sifrei Torah were designated for shluchim in remote locations where securing a Sefer Torah of their own is a daunting, if impossible, task.

The first twelve winners were announced at the International Kinus Hashluchos last winter, with the remaining twenty-four Sifrei Torah still waiting for their new homes. As the kinus comes to an end and the shluchim headed out with their Torahs in hand, Rabbi Yitzchok Raskin wished them well in their communities which will no doubt be greatly enhanced be their new addition. The largest siyum in history was facilitated by Rabbi Yitzchok Raskin, of Machon Stam.
