HACHNASSAT SEFER TORAH CELEBRATION
MITZVAH AT WOODMERE REHABILITATION AND HEALTH CARE CENTER
Woodmere, New York (October 10, 2012) – Bringing a newly written Torah into a Synagogue is called Hachnassat Sefer Torah, which literally means the bringing in a Sefer Torah.
Michaelle Gorman, Speech Therapist at Woodmere Rehabilitation
and Health Care Center (WRHCC) and her sister Leah Bulka will
be donating a Sefer Torah to the WRHCC community in memory of
their parents, Rabbi Dr. Noah and Pearl Rosenbloom.
This dedication will take place on Sunday, October 28 at 12:30 PM. The procession will begin at 12:30 PM from Central & Prospect Avenues to the Woodmere Rehabilitation and Health Care Center/Central Avenue Parking Lot.
There are many customs that deal with this Mitzvah. They center around a wedding theme. Acceptance of the Torah is seen as being compared to a wedding. Mount Sinai is the canopy, the Jewish people the bride, the Almighty the groom, and the ring is the Torah.
Woodmere Rehabilitation & Health Care Center is located in the heart of The Five Towns. The 336 bed facility offers quality, individualized and specialized services and programs in long term care, short term rehabilitation and sub-acute care including on-site dialysis, wound care and ventilator care.
