    Is it just me or is using a Sefer Torah as a fundraiser a little disrespectful?

  • Joe shmoe says:

    It’s just you

  • wow says:

    I see nothing wrong with it. And I am assuming the rabbi off the shul gave his ok.

  • Wow! says:

    Great Raffle! I’m sick of all the Shaitel raffles, as well as electronics, etc. A Sefer Torah! Wow! And $50 is very reasonable. Also a nice gift idea.

  • huh? says:

  • S.B. says:

    I’m impressed with this raffle idea. I will buy a ticket, bl”n. I hope others buy too – as long as I win!

  • RebRambo says:

    Count me in. The Rav of the shul, Rav Moshe Chaim Kahan shlit”a is a beloved by his community and is a pose at BMG as well.

    As to number one, naysayers should keep comments to their very little self.

  • Osher says:

    What a wonderful eitza. I’m going to buy a ticket now- enough talking about this, I’m just going to do. Hopefully I’ll win.

  • Shmiel Mol says:

    This is great! I spoke to a member of the shul. He said that they don’t mind if a group of people get together & buy tickets together so that they can get the discounted price.

    $50 is great for an opportunity to have a Sefer Torah, but if I get 10 guys together- WOW!!!! Just $36 for such an incredible opportunity!!!!!

  • Pothole says:

    It’s amazing how thoughtful this raffle is. I’m going to buy one now.

  • M.S. says:

    My husband always dreams about owning a Sefer Torah. We can’t afford to buy one but maybe I should buy him a ticket. $50 we can afford, and hey, you never know…..

  • ???? says:

    is one yotzeh the mitzva of ksivas sefer torah by winning it in a raffle?

  • Pothole says:

    Dear ????,

    I think they are giving you the Zchus to have it written. You pick the Ksav etc, they pay the Sofer.
