Amidst a beautiful sea of emotions, Mel Lifshitz and dad, Daniel Lifshitz, danced through the Beis Midrash study hall of Netiv Aryeh, a Jewish learning institute for collegiate boys located in the in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem (yna.edu), celebrating the recent writing and presentation of a Sefer Torah or Torah Scroll. The crowd went wild as Mel and his father gave powerful inspirational speeches on the importance of religion, family, and identity. The spiritually moving affair was capped off by a scrumptious feast in the Rosh Hayeshiva, Rav Aahron Binah’s Office. Also in addition to Mel Lifshitz and his parents Claire and Daniel, in attendance were various other members of the Lifshitz Family, Rabbis, Rabbinical students and other guests, all there to join in the joyous celebration.
The Group had spent the previous week visiting a long list of distinguished Rabbi’s and revered religious leaders in the Jewish Community, many of whom had shared their congratulations for the Lifshitz family, in addition to contributing the writing of the Torah. The Torah was written in honor of Rabbi Daniel Lifshitz’s birthday as a surprise, and was given to him following completion, to donate to the organization of his choice.
