The Year of the Torah:
Campaign for Kemach (Sustenance)
Our sacred Torah symbolizes a sacred process - our ongoing collective commitment to the search for truth. Torah proves its worth to us as a modern people over and over again, as a repository of wisdom and as motivation to pursue a life of integrity and contribution. It is truly our sustenance.
In honor of Kol HaLev's Torah scroll, and in service of both its physical utility and its symbolic potency, we invite you to contribute to the kemach, the sustenance, of our community with your pledge of financial support. Funds will be used to meet the budgetary goals that enable Kol HaLev to offer the rich, meaningful experiences that are the hallmark of our wonderful community.
Without financial sustenance, we haven't the means to pursue our study of Torah, that Tree of Life upon which our community relies spiritually; without the Torah, our means are meaningless.
"If there is no sustenance, there is no Torah. If there is no Torah, there is no sustenance."
-Pirke Avot (Ethics of the Fathers) 3:17
