Czech Torah Scrolls

Temple Beth Am is honored to be the holder of Torah scroll number 574 from the Memorial Scrolls Trust. This special Sefer Torah is one of 1,564 Czech Memorial Sifre Torah which was saved by being collected in Prague during the Nazi occupation. Our temple’s scroll was written in Melnik in the middle of the 19th century and we are privileged to read from it and carry on its special legacy at Temple Beth Am.
