      Torah Dedication for Storefront Chabad in Pisgat Ze'ev

      The Mercaz Igrot Hakodesh (Holy Writings Center) of the Chabad Lubavitch Hasidic movement will dedicate a Torah scroll, Sunday evening in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze'ev. A procession with the scroll is scheduled to start at the Kanion Hapisga shopping center at 8:00 p.m. and make its way to the storefront at 164 Moshe Dayan.

      The center has been operating for a little more than a year. The acquisition of the Torah scroll will allow it to expand its operations to include religious services requiring readings from the Torah.
