Sefer Torah Being Written in Memory of Slain Menachem Stark

Sefer TorahBrooklyn, NY – As family and friend are still coming to grips with the reality of the kidnapping and brutal slaying of Williamsburg Philanthropist Menachem Stark, they are seeking to fill the void left by his passing.

Therefore they have vowed to perpetuate his life and all of his holy endeavors by writing of a brand new Sefer Torah (Torah scroll) to be used and celebrated with in his eternal memory.

The writing of the Sefer Torah has already started on the conclusion of the Shloshim period (the second mourning period which consists of the first 30 days after the passing of an individual).

Family members tell JP Updates that they hope to have the sefer torah ready in time for his first Yahrtzeit (anniversary).

After it’s completion a big Hachnosas Sefer Torah celebration will be held at which the sefer torah will be brought into a synagogue to be used to read the weekly torah portions in memory of Menachem. It’s still unclear which synagogue the sefer torah will be brought to upon it’s completion.
