The Rebbe instructed that the office running the Torah Scroll Campaign should be in Kfar Chabad (the Chabad village near Tel-Aviv in Israel) and specifically asked for Israel's Chabad Rabbinical Council (Vaad Rabbonei Chabad) to oversee the campaign. The rabbis immediately met in Jerusalem to discuss the exciting challenge that lay ahead.

During the meeting, the celebrated sofer (scribe) Rabbi Shlomo Aharon Henig was given the task of writing the Torah scroll. The parchment was immediately purchased and the writing began immediately on the Hebrew date of the 11th Nissan. Later on, another expert sofer, Rabbi Shimshon Cahana, was appointed to work on the Torah alongside Rabbi Henig.

Rabbi Shmuel Greisman, a Chabad-Lubavitch emissary to Israel, was appointed to direct the campaign. From then on, Rabbi Greisman has been running the Children's Torah Campaign.
