Erev Shabbat with Guest Speaker Francis Moïsi
Friday, December 6 @6:15pm-7:30pm
Francis Moïsi, a retired Paris metro executive and a 4th generation Parisian Jew, was going through family possessions when he made an astonishing discovery: a beautiful, tiny Torah Scroll in a white satin cover with gold fringe. Measuring not more than 8 inches high, it was dedicated to his paternal grandfather, but his father had never spoken of it.
It was clearly valuable, and both its small size and its secrecy led Moïsi on a search to find answers about the role of miniature scrolls in Jewish life and why this one was a secret. Mr. Moïsi will speak about this quest and the book resulting from it at tonight’s service.
Doors open at 5:45pm
