Saul Receives the Torah

Saul Receives the Torah

URJ Camp Newman

We included in the service the customary passing of the Torah. One significant difference was that Saul received the Torah scroll that his great-grandfather purchased for their synagogue in Centralia, Illinois. When the synagogue closed its doors, the Torah scroll was returned to the Novak family, and we are the current caretakers of it.
