“The Torah began as stories and narrative, as a loving covenant,” Dr. Feinberg shared recently during the unveiling of our newest addition to the Abraham Center, a nonkosher Hebrew Torah scroll from the 1800’s. Penned on this scroll are the recorded stories of God’s people across generations, poems of joy and lament, songs of sorrow and thanksgiving. Now, thanks to a generous donation from God’s Ancient Library, Dallas International students can experience the Torah for themselves.
The mission of God’s Ancient Library is “to help institutions of learning receive the benefits of being able to study ancient Torah scrolls firsthand.” This particular Torah scroll was one of two damaged Torahs carried from Germany to Israel in the heat of war by a poor, marginalized community. Since the community could not afford to replace the two scrolls, they combined them, stitching together two parts of the same story.
In a recent chapel service, the Dallas International community celebrated this gift and had the opportunity to touch the scroll and experience its beauty firsthand. “God’s people put the Word between their eyes before they put it in their soul,” they were told. “Touch the scroll.” The Word of God had been made accessible, just as our graduates hope to do with marginalized communities like the one that patched the Torah together decades ago. Together, as we study the ancient words, we look forward to people groups around the world one day receiving God’s Word in their heart languages to put into their souls.
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, December 3rd,
because Giving Tuesday is coming soon!
Our school has been blessed with growth in our student enrollment, the addition of the Ph.D. in World Arts, and many other opportunities and we are grateful. But we need people like you to help us move forward through giving to Dallas International. Your “Yes” through financial partnership with us can help position us for future growth and make an eternal impact in minority language communities worldwide as a result.
You give, we train, and they go. Together, we will be able to help more communities experience the Word of God first-hand.
Your Gifts Make a Difference:
Student Benevolent Fund
Recently, a student’s laptop was run over by a car, and she did not have the funds to fix its cracked screen. How overjoyed she was to discover the Dallas International Student Benevolence Fund and learn that it would cover the entire cost of repairs. She wants to thank all donors to the benevolence fund for being part of the “Yes” to her prayers for His provision for her and other Dallas International students in financial crises. Your gifts to the benevolence fund made it possible for this student to focus on her studies and empowered her to continue training for future work on the field.
