Sofer Dov Berger dedicates talk to Laurel Nahshon z”l

Explaining the "shir" detail!

This past Wednesday sofer Dov Berger, who dedicated his talk to the memory of Laurel Nahshon z”l, captivated the audience with the Sacred Craft of the Sofer. He explained the technical, educational and ethical aspects of the profession. He provided samples of the materials used by a sofer and examples of the problems encountered in the work. He concluded his talk in a ‘gather round an Emanu-El Torah scroll’ show & tell/Q&A wrap-up which the attendees enjoyed immensely.
