Holocaust Memorial Torah

Temple Sholom Greenwich Holocaust Torah

In memory of the Six Million defiled by the Nazis, this sacred Torah (MST#278) was rescued from the rubble of a small synagogue in an unknown town of Czechoslovakia. It is displayed at Temple Sholom with reverence, as a memorial to the Six Million, and as a remembrance of the thousands of Torahs, holy books and religious objects which were destroyed.

Significantly, this Torah is opened to the Book of Exodus, the passage of the Ten Commandments.

We are grateful to Linda and Edmund Baulsir for retrieving this Torah from the Westminster Synagogue in London. It is on Permanent Loan from the Memorial Scrolls Trust, through which these scrolls take a message of hope, continuity and resilience to every corner of the globe.
