Rabbi Abraham Levy gifted Torah by wife Estelle LevyJanuary 11, 2012
On the 11th July 2010 a special service was held at Lauderdale Road Synagogue to celebrate the completion of a new Sepher Torah. The Sepher Torah was a gift from Estelle to her husband Rabbi Abraham Levy. The Sopher was Rabbi Levys’s cousin Yossi Anahory who lives in Israel.
The cloak was embroidered by Estelle using a real gold band from an old Moroccan wedding dress of the family.
The pointer was a copy of that given by Aaron Cardozo to a Gibraltar Synagogue. Cardozo was a good friend of Admiral Nelson, he was a good Jew and a good citizen of Gibraltar who was responsible for providing supplies for the Battle of Trafalgar.
The box for the Sepher was a gift from the Tunisian Government who invited Rabbi Levy recently to attend Lag Ba’Omer celebrations in Djerba. He asked his guests where he could order a box for the Sepher Torah and within three days they made a leather box for him as a present to mark his visit.

Dr Naim Dangoor is called up to write one of the final letters of the new Sepher.
