New Torah | Kauai Jewish Community


The Jewish Community of Kauai is grateful and awed to present to our members a brand new Kosher Torah that is arriving on Kauai this week. We were able to acquire this new Torah through a very generous gift which was provided by the Lovell Family Trust.

This indescribably beautiful Torah was hand-written for us by a scribe in Israel. The unique, hand-made custom Etz Chaim (rollers) were also made in Israel, with inlaid wood from around the world, including koa we sent from Kauai.

How wonderful and amazing is this!

There are so many people to thank for making this happen. They include (in no particular order) Rabbi Aryeh Azriel, Rabbi Bill Kurry¬†ZT”L, Rabbinical confirmant Rob Kvidt, and all of JCK’s board members, including co-presidents Carol Pescaia and Jeff Tucker.

We will be using the new Torah for all of the 5779 High Holidays. There will also be an opportunity for community members to see the Torah up close.

A formal Torah dedication with Rabbi Aryeh Azriel will take place in the near future. At that time we will also acknowledge the many loving hands from across the world, the untold number of processes, and many hundreds of hours that it took to make this Torah a reality for our community.
