Who we are |
Say good bye to greeting cards, and give a gift that will uplift you and your recipient!
No longer are you destined to buy a card that will end up in the trash. The days of generic greeting cards are a thing of the past. With Torah-Letters.com, you can now send Jewish cards and gifts, the Jewish way!
What makes Torah Letter cards unique is that with each card, the sender is actually buying a letter in a Torah Scroll for the recipient. This Torah Scroll will be donated to the Western Wall and benefit Jews from around the world.
With our vast array of greeting cards, holiday cards and memorial cards, this distinct gift can be bought to commemorate any occasion. When someone purchases a Torah Letter card, an e-card or poster is sent to the recipient letting them know about the incredible gift they just received. Each card is customized to include the recipient's name, sender's name and Torah letter purchased.
By sending Torah Letter Cards you:
In 1933, Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzensky (Rav of Vilna and leader of world Jewry) called on Jews everywhere to participate in the writing of a sefer Torah by purchasing Torah letters. He called on every man and woman to participate and "thereby fulfill the mitzvah of writing a sefer Torah." The times have changed but the mitzvah is still the same!
- Support Israel Torah Letter cards are made and printed in Israel by an Israeli company. As well, a portion of each card and gift is donated to support the needy in Israel through the Kupa Shel Tzedakah Charity (non-profit # 580475846)
- Send a mitzvah By sending a Torah Letter card, you are actually sending a mitzvah (good deed) to the recipient. This is the mitzvah of "writing one's own Torah Scroll" which can be fulfilled with owing one letter in a completed scroll. The sefer ha'chinuch writes that "Those who fulfill this mitzvah shall be blessed and he and his children shall become wise."
- Unite with the Kotel/Western Wall The Torah Scroll will be donated to the Western Wall and will benefit Jews from around the world. The recipients will be touched with the gift of a Torah Letter at the holiest place in the world.
- Help bring Jewish Unity Purchasing a letter in a Torah Scroll unites that person with all other Jews who have purchased letters in that same scroll.
The former chief Rabbi of Israel (Mordechai Elyiahu zt"l) said on this topic "Indeed, only within Torah and through Torah is the true unity of close friendship, love, brotherhood, peace and compassion possible".
