A "Siyum" is a beautiful religious Jewish ceremony that commemorates the completion of the scribes writing of the Torah, the 5 books of Moses, in the Hebrew language. This is an over 5000 year old tradition, and regardless of the tests of time, ancient or modern, by divine providence, it survives. It was written and handed down by Moses over 3,300 years ago, preserved in its very exact form, letter by letter, till today.
This "siyum" took place in Las Vegas, January 15, 2012. Rabbi Bressman was the Sofer, the scribe. This film was shot, edited and scored by Sha-Ron Kushnir in Los Angeles, California.
The music, based on the musical Niggun known as, "Torat Emet Natan Lanu", means to say, without actually referring to G-d at all, yet surely implying it, that the Unknowable gave us Truth, synonymous with the Torah. The second phrase of the melody states "Baruch Asher Bachar Banu", meaning to say, may the Blessed One be magnified for choosing us, Jew or Gentile, who recognize and practice that Truth, respectively, according to what is appropriate for each and every one of us.
It is of Jewish belief that before the advent of the universes manifestation, there was the Torah, whose every single letter, the ink of every single and unique soul, was carefully written by the hand of G-d. Just as careful, meticulous and scrupulously the scribe recreates each letter of the Torah, guided under the multitude of ancient and timeless rules pertaining to each one - every movement of the feather, so did G-d create each of our individual souls meticulously, full of care, attention, precision, beauty and grace. Following that, the universe came into being, then time, followed by the unfolding and flowering of all the vast elements of creation.
With the realization, revelation and the dissolution of all whenever that time will come, Torah remains, just as truth remains, and as every letter of that Torah is set in its precise place, so will every soul, each and every one of us, finally know our very special place in the universe, and in all of creation.
