New synagogue has torah introduction ceremony

A new synagogue opened in Ariel today, our fourteenth. It’s called ‘Moriah’ after the nearby street as well as in the spirit of using a name synonomous of Jerusalem, just like our own Ari’el. The rosh yeshiva of the new hesder yeshiva as well as the vice-mayor both showed up for the parade and subsequent seudat mitzva ceremony. It was mentioned though, that this was not the ceremony for opening the synagogue. Renovations have not yet been completed, but since the building is already usable by a minyan, a torah can be brought in and that is the reason to welcome it with a celebration. Next week, the new mikva will be officially opended.
