Our Torah scroll is one of 1,564 scrolls recovered in Prague after the Holocaust. It dates back to the early 1800s and comes from the Jewish community in Sedlcany, Czechoslovakia. Currently marred by missing letters and seams that need to be re-sewn, it remains undeniably beautiful.

In 1989, the Memorial Scrolls Trust in England entrusted Shalom Institute with this special Torah to use with our Camp JCA Shalom campers, family camps, synagogue and day school retreats, and with the community organizations that use Shalom Institute as their retreat center.
