Digital Sefer Torah

Planning on reading Torah for Shabbat? Curious about what our Shabbat Torah scroll looks like on the inside? You're in luck! Thanks to the combined efforts of several Agudas Achim members, we have uploaded and named each column of Torah from our Shabbat Torah scroll.
To take a look, just click here. For your convenience, we have labeled each PDF according to book, chapter, and parsha. For example, if you are looking for the reading from Parashat B'Shalach (Exodus/Shemot 14:1), you could find it in the PDF file labeled "c78.Shemot.13-14.Bo-Beshalach.pdf", with "c78" standing for Column 78."
Many thanks to the Ritual Committee and to our office staff for helping turn this idea into a reality. If you need assistance finding a particular potion, please contact Hazzan Dienstfrey.

Sponsoring a Kiddush
