HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, NOVEMBER 26, 2010 Torah's w()J'l, twide journey makes 1st ,top in Ocala By Yaakov Freedman Ocala bills itself as the "horse capital of the world." Pickup trucks and trailers are standard around Marion County, and farms and pas- tureland--as  well as race tracks--dot the landscape. But in the midst of the thoroughbred wilderness sits a Chabad-Lubavitch center with a distinction of its own: On Nov. 13 the combination synagogue and community center celebrated its status as the first location to use a newly dedicated Torah scroll commissioned way north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Dedicated at The Hamp- ton Synagogue by the phil- anthropic Kaylie family in honor of the 100th birthday of grandmother Tess Kaylie, the "Traveling Torah" will ,make the rounds of Jewish communities throughout the world. It arrived recently at Rabbi Yossi and Chanie Hecht's Chabad of Marion County last week. "Our grandmother is a very modest person," says Roberta Kaylie. "We wanted to find a way to honor her that would be special. This will help people all over the world, wherever they have a need for a Torah scroll." Written in Israel, the spe- cial scroll took just under a year to complete. Rabbi Eli Goodman, director of Chabad of the Beaches in Long Beach, N.Y., coordinated the project. "Our goal is to help and inspire these communities," says Goodman. "We hope us- ing the scroll for a year will provide the impetus they need to fundraise for a permanent one of their own." So why Ocala? Answers the rabbi: "We were looking for a Chabad House that was new enough- to not have their own scroll yet, but established enough Celebrants welcome a new traveling Torah scroll to The Hampton Synagogue on New York's Long Island before dis- patching it to Chabad of Marion County in Ocala. to have a sufficient quorum for organized public services." The Kaylie family commis- sioned the traveling scroll. Home to what is consid- ered the oldest standing synagogue in Florida, Ocala's aging Jewish community got its first permanent Chabad House a year-and-a-half ago. "In the beginning, we only had a minyan once a month," says Yossi Hecht. "But we rap- idly grew to the point where we now have one three times a month. "Everyone here is very excited. We've had to bor- row a Torah scroll until now, and we are very grateful for the opportunity to have our own." Goodman says post-Ocala locations are still beiflg considered. "We looked into Russia," laughs Goodman, "but dis- covered it wouldn't be so easy to get it back out. It will go where it' needed. Hopefully, it will travel more than any other Torah in the world."
