Hundreds of community members and guests participated this Sunday in the festive inauguration of a new Torah scroll, the first ever to be donated to the new grand Synagogue of Novosibirsk, Russia that had opened only half a year ago

The last letters of the Torah scroll that was donated by the Zilvonesky family, were written in a special ceremony at the home of the community’s rabbi and continued with a colorful parade that made its way through the city’s streets towards the Synagogue.

After arriving at the hall, dancing and singing were held in honor of the new Torah scroll, and the event concluded with a festive meal that continued for many hours.
