These are the hands of Mishkan
The joining and overlapping of our
hands, including a thread of children's hands running up the center,
has inspired many interpretations as people have looked upon this
visual form of our community coming together.

Ha'am's Torah was a gift from the Nathan Straus Jewish Center of the
Bronx, thanks to the efforts of its treasurer, Arthur Schickler.
It is far more meaningful to us that the Torah came from their community, rich in its own history, than if it were brand new. Their shul may have closed its doors, but through the passing on of their Torah, the spirit, heart and passions of their congregation have become our responsibility to guard, maintain and augment.
Believed originally to be from Poland, and close to one hundred years old, our scroll was "koshered" by rabbi and scribe Manny Vinas and dedicated by our community at our Chanukah celebration in 2000.
This photo is a close-up of the Menorah that decorates the Torah cover.
