Torah Scrolls Dedicated at Kotel In Honor of Hostages, Soldiers

(JNS) At press time, a massive Torah scroll dedication ceremony to honor Israeli hostages and soldiers in Gaza was set to take place Tuesday, November 21 at the Kotel Plaza in the Old City.

Two scrolls were being dedicated “to elevate the souls of the fallen, the well-being of soldiers, and return of the hostages.”

Families of fallen soldiers and hostages as well as evacuees from the north and south were slated to attend the ceremony. Rabbis and public figures were also expected to participate.

Ceremonies were also taking place for dozens of additional Torah scrolls that will eventually be donated to communities devastated by the war.

The first Torah scroll will be completed on Tuesday at the Kotel and dedicated the following day to the Kerem Shalom community in the Gaza Envelope.
