You are here at this website because you are a partner in our community or were a close friend of Dr. Alex Shapiro, of blessed memory.

A baby is named at the Torah, and a Bar Mitzvah is celebrated with the Torah. In times of need, prayers are offered in front of the Torah. Year after year we rejoice as we once again complete the entire Torah. There is no greater symbol of Jewish survival than the Torah. It links us to 3,326 years of unbroken Jewish tradition, and it is the guarantee for our future and eternity. Having a Torah dedicated, is the greatest pride to a Jewish community and spacial way to honor someone and keep their soul alive.

The goal is to complete this Torah by April 2015. We will have a Torah dedication which we hope you will all join us for.


The cost of this project is $30,000 and we are turning to the Vernon Hills chabad friends and partners along with all friends and family that knew Dr. Alex Shapiro to participate and help us reach our goal. Every donation is tax deductible and will be acknowledged at the event at the dedication.

Please donate generously to make this special endeavor happen.

A check can be mailed to: Chabad Jewish Center of Vernon Hills, 271 Hunter Ct, Vernon Hills, IL 60061. All checks should be made out to Chabad of Vernon Hills (please write, Vernon Hills Torah) and a tax deductible receipt will be mailed to you for your tax records.

Wishing you and your loved ones much health and happiness.

Rabbi Shimmy Susskind & Kolontyrskiy Family
