Gainesville Jewish Community Celebrates The Arrival Of New Torah

By

Members of the Jewish community in Gainesville gathered at UF’s Jewish Student and Community Center this weekend for a ceremony to celebrate the installment of a new Torah.

The Torah, which was in Israel for ten months before coming to Gainesville, is the fifth to be dedicated by the Jewish Center.

The atmosphere of the celebration was hopeful after last weeks’ protest against hateful symbols on UF’s campus.
