899. By hand

Oy, things are getting busy again, which is good (in terms of my bank account) and bad (in terms of staying sane). Until I have a few more seconds to write, here's a new kind of Torah for the 21st century—and an interesting interpretation of the mitzvah of participating in the writing of a Torah:

People's Torah

From the site:

"Every Torah has exactly 304,805 Hebrew letters, and it is said that each of these letters corresponds to a soul So, too, People's Torah will have 304,805 Hebrew letters. Each letter will correspond to an individual and be rendered from (and image of) that individual's hand."
