I traveled to Beachwood, Ohio, on Sunday, April 23, 2023, to participate in a very special event honoring a Holocaust Torah Scroll that resides in Prentis Apartments in Oak Park. The history behind this scroll will chill you. Never Forget.
During World War II, the Nazis closed and destroyed synagogues in the Jewish communities in Moravia and Bohemia, looting them of their cherished contents. In 1942, the Nazi officials in charge of the Czech “Protectorate” established the Central Jewish Museum, located in Prague, and shipped over 10,000 ritual objects from liquidated Jewish communities and synagogues to the Museum.
