What makes DJ Johnny Versache different from all other DJ’s?

Well, for one thing, the disc jockey over at OPM Restaurant and Ultra Lounge, 3202 Emmons Avenue, dedicated a new Sefer Torah during a gala dinner benefiting Camp F.R.E.E. – the Gan Israel Scholarship Fund.

The highlight of the event was the commencement of a new Sefer Torah, dedicated by the well-known New York DJ Johnny Versache (Zachariah).
Supporters of the camp in attendance were honored with the writing of the first letters.
Rabbi Dan Dashevsky, the camp’s administrator, told a beautiful story comparing a Jew to a living Torah Scroll and presented the dinner awards together with the camp director, Rabbi Mendel Okunov.
Rabbi Meir Okunov, the chairman of F.R.E.E. awarded Rabbi Shlomo Galperin for the 40 years of dedication to Jewish education. Young professionals and businessmen were entertained by popular comedian Modi.

Recently garnering not such glowing feedback from seniors at a nearby retirement home, hosting a benefit for youngsters to be able to attend Camp F.R.E.E. – Gan Israel is a cause worth making a little noise over.
