Rediscovery: Torah Detective with Soferet Linda Coppleson
December 20, 2020 , 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Temple Sinai welcomes Soferet Linda Coppleson who will present Rediscovery: Torah Detective. Coppelson, who is scribing Temple Sinai’s new Torah, will discuss a sefer Torah’s journey to New York. Is it a relic of Judeo-Spanish life before the Expulsion of Jews from Spain? Is it what remained of a long-since abandoned North African Sepharadi community, threatened by invading armies in WWII? What circuitous route did this small, fragile Sefer Torah take on its journey to New York? Find out more at this free event. 1 p.m. templesinaipgh.org/event/detective.html
