The writing of the final osiyos took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Brafman nephew, Reb Avrohom Boruch Brafman, on Jeanine Way. Reb Avrohom Boruch is a son of Mr. Brafman’s brother, Rav Ahron Brafman, longtime menahel of Yeshiva Derech Ayson of Far Rockaway.

Among those who participated in writing osiyos were Rav Aryeh Malkiel Kotler, Rav Yeruchem Olshin and Rav Dovid Schustal, roshei yeshiva of Bais Medrash Govoah.

Following the completion of the Sefer Torah, with the final letter being written by Mr. Brafman, it was then carried, amidst lively singing and dancing, to the Bais Medrash of Chesterfield Commons on Walnut Avenue. Music was provided by Moshe Zukerman, with beautiful singing from Shua Kessin.

This is the fourth Sefer Torah dedicated by Mr. Brafman and his family.

  1. I was there and it was one of the most beautiful hachnosas Sifrei torah I ever attended.

    Kudos to Ben and his wife Lynda. And mazel tov to the Lents. The bar mitzvah boy is a real mentch and a true source of nachas!

    Please come to visit us in Lakewood and spend a Shabbos with us! It was a pleasure to have you. May we only share wonderful occasions.

    Mazel tov on the Sefer Torah and the bar mitzvah.

    I feel you are dissing many other Chashuvim, perhaps lesser known, who also contributed in this Inyan
