Achdus Torah for R' Shalom Mordechai Rubashkin

Dear Friends,

A Sefer Torah is currently being written in Yerushalayim Ir HaKodesh in the merit of our father, R' Sholom Mordechai HaLevi ben Rivkah.

His ordeal has put the beautiful and eternal unity of the Jewish people on display in all its glory. Our holy Torah is the embodiment of that unity - every single letter is an integral part of the Torah, and without it the entire Torah is invalid.

We therefore feel that it is fitting and a great Zchus, for him and for all of us, to make this another opportunity for Achdus. We would like to ask every Jew to join in the writing of this Torah with a symbolic participation of $1.

We have created an online form at, where payment can be made by credit card. Names and mother's names can optionally be sent in there as well.

Participation by check (payable to the Sofer, 'HaSofer') can be sent to:

Achdus Torah
53 Olympia Lane
Monsey, NY 10952

To make a tax-deductible donation, inquire about dedication opportunities or if you have any other questions, email us at

With gratitude and trust in Hashem,

The Rubashkin Family
