Kevin art web 250 x 525Kadima's Women's Torah is the first Torah created and embellished by an international community of women. It was finished in Seattle, Washington, on October 15, 2010, with the help of many hands, hearts, and spirits. It is the first Torah literally sewn together in community. Dozens of people had the opportunity to fill in letters, sew the parchment panels together, and tie the scroll to the rollers. Many others watched or helped the six scribes put the 62 panels in order, under the exultant wings of Shekinah.

The six sofrot (female Torah scribes) who wrote Kadima's Women's Torah reside in the U.S., Israel, Canada, and Brazil. Seven international artists created the yad, rimonim (crowns), mantle, wimple and clasp, bima (altar) cloth, Kiddush cup, and eytz chayyim (rollers) for the Torah.

Although the Women's Torah belongs to the Kadima Community, we know that many other congregations and groups will find it meaningful to study, worship, and read from this special Torah.
