Harold Robinson joins me in thanking you for your participation in our Torah
for Our Troops campaign.

to you, the campaign was a great success — we exceeded our goal!

donors responded to our appeal and collectively we raised nearly $50,000.  

next step is for the scribe to complete the Torah, which will then be sent to
the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) in Okinawa to arrive in

around the western Pacific.We
will keep you posted in future emails and on our Facebook page ( so that you may learn firsthand what your
generosity has made possible. We could not have done this without you and
we extend our warmest thanks to you for your generous support!

Stephanie KalishThank you so much for this campaign! My husband was lucky enough to be deployed the last time with Chaplin Warren and it made his entire deployment to be able to have a Jewish community to support him whilst so far from his family. This is a wonderful campaign and I think it will make a huge impact on the Jewish troops. Thank you.
