Yeshiva Torah Ohr of North Miami Beach, Florida, held a hachnasas Sefer Torah on Sunday 24 Adar 2.
The Torah was one 6 Torahs that Leonardo Farkas of Chile donated this year in which a new Torah was sent to six continents.
The program began with a children’s rally led by Rabbi Chaim Body of Bais Menachem, North Miami Beach, which included a children’s presentation of how a Sefer Torah is written.
Soon after, a full procession escorted the new Torah into the Yeshiva to dance the 8 customary hakofos.
A Seudas Mitzvah followed the hakofos where recent graduate of the University of Central Florida and a recent student who enrolled in Yeshiva Ohr Benyomin Zand addressed the crowd as well as the other members of the hanhala.
To culminate the event, Head Shliach to the state of Florida for 57 years, Rabbi Avrohom Korf farbrenged for the joyous crowd and expressed how impressed he is each time he visits the yeshiva and sees the tremendous growth of the bochorim.
