Temple Israel Welcomes a New Torah Sunday,   December   9,   2018,   was   a   landmark   day   for   Temple   Israel. That   was   the   day   when   a   huge   crowd   of   Temple   family   and   friends were    in    attendance    at    the    dedication    of    our    brand-new    Torah. Commissioned   and   sponsored   by   Lisa   Israel ,   and   named   in   her honor,   the   Torah   was   written   by   hand   over   the   last   18   months.   and replaces our oldest and least-usable Torah. In   a   joyous   celebration,   everyone   welcomed   the   arrival   of   the   new Torah   as   it   was   paraded   around   the   sanctuary   with   song.   And   just to   complement   the   main   event   of   the   day,   that   ceremony   was followed   by   the   naming   of   Herbert   and   Georgina   Israel 's   new   little girl, Penelope . Mazel Tov to the parents and grandparents! Festivities concluded with a lavish luncheon in the social hall.
