Torah Dedication in Memory of Julius L Lassner z"l

Dear Family & Friends:


Our Husband, Father, Grandfather, mentor and friend, Julius L. Lassner’s z’l second home for over four decades was Orach Chaim. It was his place of prayer, meditation, comradery and one-on-one time with God.

He accomplished much in life and was extremely humbled to serve as a member of the Chevra Kadisha in Bogotá, Colombia and later at his beloved Congregation Orach Chaim and Upper East Side.

With that in mind, as we just commemorated his 2nd yahrzeit, we invite you to join us in participating in the 613th mitzvah of the Torah; to take part in writing a new Torah in memory of our beloved Jules z’l. It will be a lighter and slightly smaller Torah and therefore regardless of strength or ability all can carry it. The Torah will be used at Orach Chaim and during shiva minyanim.


If you prefer to pay by check, you may do so using the form here.

We thank you in advance for participating in this great Mitzvah.
