    The Lubavitch of Scotland 45th Anniversary Celebration Concert and Sefer Torah dedication was held this past Sunday at Garnethill Shul in the Glasgow city center.

    The event was to celebrate 45 years of active shlichus service on behalf of the Lubavitcher Rebbe establishing and running Lubavitch in Scotland, the work carried out by Rabbi Chaim and Sora Jacobs, together with their son and daughter in law Rabbi Mendel and Tzirl.

    Over the past 16 months a Sefer Torah was written in their honor and sponsors by numerous family, friends and supporters from near and far.

    The days events began in the morning with the writing of the final letters in the Torah by a cross section of members of the local Jewish community at the Jacobs home. This was followed by letters written by the sons and sons in law of the family and the final two letters were written by the baal simcha Rabbi Chaim Jacobs.

    In the afternoon the dedication service was followed by a concert where the Shabbaton choir of London took place.

    The proceedings began with Rabbi Jacobs entering the shul carrying the new Torah scroll under a chupa. The chupa was carried by his grandsons Zushe and Dovid from London, Avrohom from Glasgow, Ari from Birmingham and Menachem from New York. This was followed by hakofos led first by Chaim Jacobs and the family and then by the local shul rabbonim, community leaders and close friends of the movement. This was followed by lively simcha dancing with Chaim Jacobs being carried on the shoulders of Michael Firestone of London.

    The electric atmosphere created by the choir led by conductor Steven Levey and Chazanim Rabbis Lionel Rosenfeld and Danny Bergson was fantastic. The choir entertained for almost one and a half hours.

    During the interval a celebration tea was served supplied by L’Chaim’s Restaurant and organised by Sora Jacobs, a historic ten minute video of activities over the past 45 years was shown. The key address was given by Rabbi Chaim Jacobs. Mincha was led by Rabbi Mendel Jacobs, a selection of psalms from Hallel was sung by Sholom Jacobs. The vote of thanks was given by close friend Dr Steven Kayne.

    On Monday morning the Torah was read at a morning service at ‘shul in the park’ and later at a special shacharis minyan held at the Jacobs home. The Torah reading was read by grandson Zushe Sandman who lives in London.
