URGENT: Sefer Torah Recycling to Initiate "Full-Service Gemach for Batei Aveilut" (Houses of Mourning)




The Sefer Torah Recycling Network has been zocha to have facilitated 13 Sifrei Torah acquisitions, restorations and placements in needy locations exclusively in Israel. Only through YOUR kind and generous donations can we continue our mission.

We are now embarking on another fund raising campaign for the Sefer Torah Recycling Network unlike previous projects which were to raise funds for a particular Sefer Torah for a particular location.

Imagine; in Eretz Yisrael, a loved one - a child, a parent, a spouse, a sibling was Chas V'Chalila just niftar. Maybe it was in an auto accident, or after a long and eventually terminal illness. Maybe it was sudden; a heart attack, a stroke. Maybe the deceased was a terror victim or a soldier killed in ambush, etc, etc.

The family, caught up in it's grief has soo many things on their minds -- the last thing they need to be burdened with is setting up a Shiva House. The last thing that needs to be occupying their thoughts is; Where to borrow a Sefer Torah for the aveilut period, an aron to house it, tables, chairs, shiva chairs, siddurim, chumashim.

The Sefer Torah Recycling Network is developing a full-service, delivery and pick-up Gemach to facilitate furnishing Batei Aveilut for the 7 day Shiva period. Based on research, including speaking with Gabbaim and Rabbonim and other Gemach organizations, there seems not to exist in Israel such a full-service Gemach as is envisioned.

But your financial help is crucial to being able to provide this service. For those wishing to donate toward this urgently needed project or the continuing work of The Sefer Torah Recycling Network; US donors, please make out your tax deductible checks as follows; “Jerusalem Education Fund”, with a note on both the Memo line of the check and on the envelope “Mark Burt & Sefer Torah Recycling Network” and mail to “Jerusalem Education Fund”, c/o Gross, 20 Rolling Road, Wynnewood, Pa. 19096. Be sure to include your address. Upon request, a tax-deductible receipt for your donation will be mailed to you.

(Please note that “Jerusalem Education Fund” is a 501(c)(3) tax deductible organization. It's EIN is: 23-2751591.)

Many Other Locations Throughout Israel Seek Their Own Sifrei Torah


YOUR help is needed and is crucial to this endeavor. In short, the donor or donors of a Sefer Torah, or those helping to locate, and to acquire a Sefer Torah via donation, are as if they had reached into their own pockets or bank accounts and donated three, four or more thousands of US$. We seek used but idle Kosher Sifrei Torah, or Sifrei Torah in posul condition in need of minimal repairs to restore them to Kosher condition for placement in numerous other worthy, economically needy locations in Israel.

Other locations seeking Sifrei Torah include Yeshiva Zichron David in Ramat Beit Shemesh, three Kehillot in Beitar Illit; including the Russian Kehilla/Yeshiva Ohel Avraham and Beit Knesset Mifal Hashem, the Alexander Muss Institute for Israel Education in Hod HaSharon, a Timani Shul in Katamon in Jerusalem, a Kehilla in Nachlaot, in Jerusalem which davens in a bomb shelter as well as many more locations throughout Israel.

Open Letter from the Founder
Just over fourteen years ago, before having made Aliyah, I founded a project which I call "The Sefer Torah Recycling Network."   Between December, 1994 and the present, we have seen to receiving, repairing and placing 13 Sifrei Torah in needy locations in Eretz Yisrael, most recently in Kever Rachel, in Yishuv Adura and a new community in Yishuv Neve Daniel. Each Sefer Torah has a story uniquely it's own.

However, we are desperately in need of both additional restorable donated Sifrei Torah and donations of funds in order for the Sefer Torah Recycling Network to continue it's mission: providing restored and renewed Sifrei Torah for many more needy and worthy communities, Shuls and Yeshivot. In short, without your help via donations of funds and used, restorable Sifrei Torah, we cannot, on a "seat of the pants" basis on a -0- budget, continue to fulfill this Mitzvah much longer.

It is said that one is truly connected to a place only when that place is a Mokom Torah through the ownership of it's own Sefer Torah. As a lover of B'nai Yisrael and of Eretz Yisrael, I'm sure that you share my wish that every location in Eretz Yisrael, regardless of economic means, be Mokomot Torah. Imagine the level of Kedusha when all of the neshamot who have lained from, touched and kissed a Sefer Torah in the past, in it's previous home, unite with all of the neshamot yet to lain from, touch and kiss the Sefer Torah here in Eretz Yisroel. This chesed affords both financial donors and donors of Sifrei Torah the opportunity to take part in possessing Eretz Yisrael.

To facilitate donations to fulfill the mission of The Sefer Torah Recycling Network, a Sponsorship donation program has been initiated. We seek to raise both donations to defray the costs of the current Sifrei Torah restoration projects as well as to raise seed funds in order to set up an Amutah or a Non-Profit Company in Israel as well as establishing a 501-C3 Non-profit organization in our own right in the US, to employ Sofrim ongoing to restore what is hoped will be a steady flow of Sifrei Torah and to locate donors of, or economic purchase of Sifrei Torah via all medium. In short, we seek to establish The Sefer Torah Recycling Network as an ongoing, serious project with all of the implications it entails.

Donors in the US, please make tax deductible donation checks out to either to: "Congregation Ahavas Torah Tzedakah Fund" with a note on both the Memo line of the check and on the envelope: "Mark Burt and Sefer Torah Recycling Network" and mail to: Congregation Ahavas Torah Tzedakah Fund", 1425 Rhawn Street, Philadelphia, Pa. 19111.

For those needing to make their donations out to a 501-C3 Non-profit organization, please make checks out to “Jerusalem Education Fund” (EIN # 23-2751591), with a note on both the Memo line of the check and on the envelope “Mark Burt & Sefer Torah Recycling Network” and mail to “Jerusalem Education Fund”, c/o Gross, 20 Rolling Road, Wynnewood, Pa. 19096. Upon request and with inclusion of your return address, a tax-deductible receipt for your donation will be mailed to you.

Donors in Canada, please make your tax deductible checks out to "JBRASS" (BN#864426911RR0001) and mail to; "The Sefer Torah Recycling Network", 46 Meadowbrook Road, Apt. 6, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M6B 2S6. Please mark on the envelope (and if possible attach a stick'em memo to the check) saying "Mark Burt & Sefer Torah Recycling Network." Upon receipt, a tax-deductible receipt for your donation will be mailed to you.
