Our Czech Scroll - Holocaust Memorial Torah #1139

The Torah was shipped in 1989 following a request by Malcolm Black who was the President at that time. The Torah is about 200 years old and comes from Mlada Boleslav, a town in the Czech Republic.

The Memorial Scrolls Trust, a U.K. non-profit organization, has begun to reach out to synagogues and other instititutions who received the Czech scrolls to gather updated information about them. They plan to continue to enhance their website so it becomes "a repository of all knowledge concerning the 1564 scrolls, the Jewish history of the towns they came from, the Jews of those towns, their fate, survivors stories, photos etc. More information about the Memorial Scrolls Trust is available on their website.
