In 1979 Temple Beth Shalom was entrusted with the safekeeping of Czech Torah MST#131, one of the 1,564 Torahs preserved from the hundreds of destroyed Jewish communities in what is now the Czech Republic. Through this Torah we wish to remember European Jewish life before the Holocaust as well as its tragic destruction, challenge those who interact with the scroll to prevent prejudice and hate and inspire our community to act in the face of injustice.
