      Jaime Shear grew up in the shadows of the Holocaust, a descendant of survivors.
      His interest in his own Jewish heritage was piqued only once he visited Israel.
      Making good on his promise to his parents, he completed university in Montreal, then began studying the fine art of becoming a Torah scribe.
      Jaime describes the incredible feeling of being a messenger of G-d while writing the Torah scrolls.
      He tells of his trips to Hong Kong where he was commissioned to write a Torah,
      meeting privately with hundreds of members of the congregation to write "their" letter in their presence, sometimes being moved to tears.
      Jaime shares the story of the lost Torah scroll which was being used by a Polish shoemaker for making sandals, until it was reclaimed,
      and which he has the honor of restoring.
      Is there a connection between the scribal arts and music? Jaime thinks so.
