Hillel Milwaukee to dedicate Torah scroll

           Hillel Milwaukee is receiving a Torah scroll owned by the former Beth El Ner Tamid Synagogue before it combined with Congregation Beth Israel to form Congregation Beth Israel Ner Tamid.

          The organization will dedicate that scroll in memory of Erik Zelman, a graduate student of architecture at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee who died this past summer.

          The ceremony is scheduled to take place on Sunday, June 9, 2 p.m., at the Hillel, 3053 N. Stowell Ave., near the UWM campus.

          Hillel Milwaukee is also raising funds to repair the scroll before the dedication.

          For more information, contact the organization, 414-961-2010 or www.hillelmilwaukee.org.
