Rabbi Avi Baitelman was beloved in his community and beloved to his family. A talented electrician by trade, he brought light into homes and lives, literally and figuratively.

He was a jovial man with an easy smile, yet he took his religious and social obligations seriously. He had a hand in every effort to assist those in need, and people loved him for it.

Avi was a devoted husband to his wife Yocheved and a loving father to their eight children, dedicating his heart and soul to their upbringing and education. He was a dedicated Chassid of the Lubavitcher Rebbe and a proud and early soldier in the Rebbe’s army of Shluchim.

The Torah is our most precious item, sustaining the Jewish people throughout history. It tells us that every Jew, regardless of background or knowledge, has an equal share in the Torah.

The 613th and final mitzvah in the Torah is that every Jew writes his own Sefer Torah. Our Rabbis have taught that one can fulfill this mitzvah by dedicating a portion or even one letter in a Torah.

Have the Sofer write a portion or a letter in the Torah just for you! Both children and adults will be given an opportunity to participate in this mitzvah.
