Commemorative Service for the Czech Scrolls from the Memorial Scrolls Trust

Sun, Apr 7 • 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM



Congregation Rodeph Sholom is the proud caretaker of a Czech Scroll from the Memorial Scrolls Trust in London, #1,104 of 1,564 scrolls saved from the Shoah. Thanks to the help from Ruth Hochberger and Marty Flumenbaum, and their youngest daughter Judy, we were able to have the Torah brought safely to CRS. Read more about our Torah here.


On April 7, CRS will join with other guardians of Czech scrolls for a commemorative service at Temple Emanu-El. Dozens of scrolls and their caregivers will assemble for a program filled with music and reflection. Guest speakers will include MST Chairman, Jeffrey Ohrenstein, Chairman, and MST Trustee, Lois Roman. In addition we will have Miles Laddie, author of 1564 Scrolls.
