This Torah symbolizes our unity in times of hardship as expressed in the story of the baal Shem tov who initiated a Torah similar when there was a pandemic in his time Because unity is the greatest vessel for blessing.

Here is the story: In the times of the Baal Shem Tov a terrible disease swept through his town of Mezibush. Men, women and children were falling ill to the epidemic. Out of desperation, the community leaders turned to the Baal Shem Tov and asked him to daven that the plague be banished from their midst. The Baal Shem Tov responded that the annulment of the decree was in their hands. Only by uniting together in the creation of a new Torah scroll, he explained, would the town be spared. Those who still had their health sprang into action and began raising the funds to commission a new Torah. The Baal Shemtov instructed his personal Sofer (ritual scribe) to begin writing this Torah. Miraculously, as the Torah was written, the community began to heal. This scroll became known as the “Miracle Sefer Torah.”
