The Guiding Hand, Torah Pointers Past and Present
February 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
On the evening of Tuesday, February 5 we have been invited to an event celebrating our Holocaust Torah, with other guardians of Czech scrolls. This once in a lifetime function, which will take place at Temple Emmanu-El in New York City – is sponsored by the Memorial Scrolls Trust and is the first ever gathering of it’s type, only for those of us with Czech Survivor Scrolls. Although it is open to all, it is unlikely that people from across the US or in Europe could make such a trip, but we are in the position to do so with our beloved Torah.
There is no cost, but I would consider renting a bus for those of us who are interested so we could travel together and enter together with our Torah.
I feel this would be very important, emotional, spiritual and quite memorable for all ages. If you think you’d be interested, let me know. This does not obligate you to go, but does give me an idea as to whether or not to investigate a bus, and think about dinner.
On the evening of Tuesday, February 5, 2019 the Herbert & Eileen Bernard Museum at Temple Emanu-El in New York will open its Spring 2019 exhibition The Guiding Hand, Torah Pointers Past and Present.
To mark the opening of this exhibition, Temple Emanu-El’s Bernard Museum, in partnership with the Memorial Scrolls Trust (MST) of London, will be hosting a gathering of Czech scrolls which survived the Holocaust. This will be the first gathering of this type in New York City. We hope that you will bring your MST scroll and a group of interested congregants to participate in a procession of the scrolls, a discussion of the exhibition and a visit to the museum.
It will be a truly powerful and memorable experience to be surrounded by dozens of Czech survivor scrolls held by their proud custodians.
