Jofa's Joan S. Meyers
Memorial Torah Lending Program

The Sefer Torah has been generously lent to Jofa by Shari and Nathan Lindenbaum, in memory of Max and Ghity Stern. The lending program is generously supported by Leon Meyers and family, in memory of Joan S. Meyers.


The Sefer Torah is available within the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut tri-state area, to individuals or groups seeking to enhance ShabbatRosh ChodeshSimchat Torah, holiday gatherings, and/or celebrate events, such as bar/bat mitzvahs, marriages, births, and other milestones. 


If you are located outside of the tri-state area, please contact us at, and we will work with you to find a solution near you!



The Torah and accompanying religious articles (aronsiddurim, etc.) are loaned on a first-come, first served basis. They must be reserved in advance. Pick-up and drop-off is in Teaneck, New Jersey. There is a $100 deposit.


To reserve the Torah and/or its accompanying religious articles, please email us at, identifying yourself, date(s) and item(s) needed, and your reason for utilizing the lending program. Someone will contact you to confirm availability and details.


Thank you for your interest!
