Torah Table Dedication


First Reading of Megillah Esther

The Torah Table features a pull-out drawer that supports the Torah when it is positioned vertically. 
This position allows wheelchair-bound congregants to read the Torah without standing up.

The Torah Table was first used when Rabbi Robert Alpert read on
Shabbat morning, February 24, 2018 – Parashat Tetsavveh.
One slide shows Rabbi Alpert reading from the Megillah Esther on Purim evening, February 28, 2018.
