Memorial Scrolls Trust Gathering

November 9, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join together at Rodeph Shalom to honor the 60th anniversary of the Memorial Scroll Trust (MST), the organization that helped save these Torahs. Torahs rescued subsequent to the Holocaust, from congregations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, will join a Hakafot (Torah processional) during this gathering.

Hear Lois Roman, MST Board Member, who will share inspiring stories about how the scrolls were saved during the Holocaust, and MST Chairperson Jeffrey Ohrenstein on “The Power of the Czech Torah Scrolls in Jewish Life.”

Following the ceremony, enjoy a reception and the opportunity to connect with one another, and hear each others’ stories and connection to the work of MST.

Registration required here. For questions, contact Jeffrey Strauss.

Our Rodeph Shalom Holocaust Torah is one of the 1,564 scrolls rescued by the Memorial Scrolls Trust organization. This scroll is from from Brno, which had a Jewish population since the 13th century.
