Siyum Sefer Torah

Rabbi Yerachmiel Benyominson, Director of Tzivos Hashem,
and Rabbi Eli Gutnick

The Jewish Children's museum in Crown Heights held a Siyum Sefer Torah last Sunday. "The Torah was dedicated by the Hoyda family in memory of Mr. Hoyda's parents, Leo and Lotte Hoyda and Ari Halberstam, the sixteen-year-old yeshiva student killed in a terrorist shooting on the Brooklyn Bridge in 1994" according to the article in COL here. What makes it newsworthy for me is that the sofer who completed the Torah is Rabbi Eli Gutnick of Melbourne who is married to Ari's sister. See more photos in Shmais here.
