Holocaust Scroll

In 1999, Congregation Beth Israel acquired a Torah scroll (MST#12) on permanent loan from the Czech Memorial Scrolls Trust. It had been confiscated by the Nazis from the town of Frydek-Mistek, along with hundreds of others from the former Jewish communities of Bohemia and Moravia. These scrolls were rescued by the Czech Memorial Scrolls Trust in 1964 and since then, many have been distributed to Jewish communities around the world in order to memorialize those lost communities.
