The Sol Teichman, OB"M, Legacy Sefer Torah Dedication
Emek Hebrew Academy Teichman Family Torah Center has commissioned a brand new Sefer Torah in honor of Mr. Sol Teichman, OB”M. This Legacy Sefer Torah is a tribute to Sol Teichman, Emek’s Patriarch and one of our founding fathers.
Sol Teichman was born in Munkacs in 1927 and underwent persecution by the Nazis; losing most of his family during WWII. After the war, he set sail to America where he met his wife Ruth. Together, they devoted their lives to helping Jewish organizations in Los Angeles and throughout the world. Sol’s mission for the last 60 years was to replace what was stolen from him personally and millions of others by the accursed Nazis: Jewish Education. At Sol’s memorial service, Rabbi Mordechai Shifman, Head of School at Emek lamented, “Sol, you have accomplished all that you needed to accomplish, and you have left no debt unpaid; on the contrary, you have left an entire community that is eternally indebted to you.”
We wish to honor and support Sol’s mission to educate as many Jewish neshamas as we can. Dedication opportunities are available at many levels and payment plans are available.
The Sefer Torah will be used by Emek and Shaarey Zedek Teens in the Emek ECC Teichman Beis Midrash as part of the new Shabbos Teen Minyan spearheaded by Rabbi Mordechai Shifman and Rabbi Moshe Segal.
