Jews in South Korea Celebrate First Torah Scroll
Inviting an expert scribe in from Israel, Jewish people in Korea got the rare chance to help complete the final letters of the scroll.
“I’m delighted,” said Rabbi Osher Litzman, head of the community here. “We have waited a long time for this to happen and now it’s finally here. It’s a big milestone in the development of our Jewish community.”
Litzman said that he had been planning to bring a Torah to Korea since his arrival in the country four years ago.
In a speech at the event, Israeli Ambassador Tuvia Israeli noted the significance of the Jewish community here getting its first Torah.
