Exhibition: The Second Life of Czech Torah Scrolls

The BBLA sincerely invites to the opening of "The Second Life of Czech Torah Scrolls" highlighting the tradition of the Torah scroll and its place in the life of the synagogue.

The exhibition covers the fate of Torah scrolls from Bohemia and Moravia during and after the Shoah. Particular focus is on the circumstances surrounding their subsequent sale in 1964 and on their current existence. In addition, it draws attention to the most interesting activities of the congregations that are now using the scrolls. The exhibition is accompanied by a film of the same name (directed by Ivan Pokorny).

This event is organized by the Society for the History of Czechoslovak Jews with the support by BBLA, Jewish Museum in Prague, Consulate General of the Czech Republic in New York and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.
