announcement of event at Kever Rachel

A friend of mine has a very worthwhile organization called the Sefer Torah Recycling Network. He gets hold of old Sifrei Torah in disuse and usually in disrepair. He gets them fixed up by sofrim and then donates them to various yishuvim in Eretz Yisrael that do not have their own Sifrei Torah. I have participated in a few Hachnassot Sifrei Torah for Torah's that he has placed in places including Gush Katif settlements, Kever Rachel and others. They are very moving events and I urge people to support him in any way possible. His website for more information can be seen at The Sefer Torah Recycling Network. (Moshe also blogs at Sin of Expulsion - make sure to check it out. This is a person who is an Ohaiv Eretz Yisrael with every fiber in his body).

Anyways, I am taking the opportunity to make an announcement on his behalf. He will be holding an event for a recently placed Torah. The details follow.. I urge anyone who can, to attend..

On Wednesday, 1 March, 2006; On the second day of Rosh Chodesh Adar, there will be a Special Leyning at 10:00 AM from the Sefer Torah placed in Beit B'nai Rachel House in July, 2005 by the Sefer Torah Recycling Network and dedicated by Dr. Lee Caplan in memory of his Dad. This event is to promote Kever Rachel as a Holy Place against government/military efforts to encage the Kever. Any questions; speak with Moshe Burt 02-999-6496.

Transportation: via Autobus #163 which leaves the Jerusalem Central Bus Station at 9:10 AM (also stops on Malchei Yisrael and Shiftei Yisrael and shuttle bus from the Machsom 9 - 9:45 AM), arriving at the Kever Rachel complex at 10:00 AM. Many thanks.
Tizke L'Mitvot!!
Moshe Burt
