In our effort to find a new congregation for JCK to join as a group, Juliet has contacted a few close by Temples.  

 
On Friday, June 7, the members of the JCK are invited to attend Shabbat services at Temple Beth Tikvah of Wayne. 
 
Services begin at 7:30 pm. 
 
We have also been invited to a wine and cheese meet & greet at 6:45 prior to services to meet some of the members of the congregation.. 
 
Please email Juliet at julietb.yachad@gmail.com if you are interested in attending either/both so that she can give them a number. 
 
 Here is the website for that Congregation, the first of several we are slated to visit over the coming year. Temple Beth Tikvah  

 

We’re wishing you a very special day..

About our Scroll

Our Torah is Czech Scroll MST #1089. It is one of the 1564 Czech Memorial Sifre Torah which formed part of the treasures which were saved by being collected in Prague during the Nazi occupation 1939-1945 from the desolated Jewish communities of Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia, and which then came under the control of the Czechoslavak Government for many years. The scrolls were acquired by Ralph Yablon and brought to the Westminster Synagogue in London. Subsequently some 1400 scrolls have been allocated on loan to communities and organisations around the world; founding member Ed Weisselberg secured the JCK scrolls.

Through the scrolls we wish to remember European Jewish life before the Holocaust as well as it’s tragic destruction, challenge those who interact with the scrolls to confront prejudice and hatred, and inspire them to action by committing to their Jewish lives and working to build bridges across communities.

For more information about the preservation and history of the Czech Memorial Sifre Torah visit “Memorial Scrolls .”
