Friends, family, and members of the Kfar Chabad community gathered to celebrate the completion of a new Torah last week in memory of Rabbi Yitzchak Morderchai Abikasis obm.
R’ Abikasis was a beloved educator who served as Menahel in the Yeshiva in Kfar Chabad and later in Petach Tikvah, Israel.
The final letters of the Torah were completed at his home in Kfar Chabad, and the Torah was led with singing and dancing to the Ohel Yaakov Shul for Hakafos.
Attending the celebration was his son Nati Abikasis, owner of Mendy’s Deli in Crown Heights. The Torah will be permanently housed at the “Chabadnitze Shul” in Kiryat Malachi.
