    The group dedicated their ascent to the summit for the sake of Israel and the captives in the hands of Hamas.

    Apparently though they are not the first Jews to ascend Everest with a Torah scroll. Last year, a group from West Hampstead in London led by Chabad Rabbi David Katz ascended to Everest, even spending the Shavuot holiday on the mountain.

    Misleading. They didn’t summit with the Torah. That’s not the summit. Secondly, this is disrespectful to the Torah.

    Exposing a Sefer Torah to extreme elements, can cause the letters to crack or fall off, rendering the scroll, Pasul.
