A New Torah Cover

The Sefer Torah was the subject of a recent post here on our congregational blog,  A Sister Shul's Torah Restoration, and while the old saying tells us that you can't judge a book by its cover, we do like to honor our sacred scrolls with special coverings and decorations.

Judging by this particular cover, our Torah will be well cared for, and our congregation will be grateful to the Capote family for many, many years to come.
