A new exhibition in New York will feature Torah scrolls rescued from the Holocaust reports the NY Jewish Week.

One by one, 72 Torah scrolls rescued from the Shoah were carried in slow procession through Temple Emanu-El’s social hall last Tuesday evening.

This was the largest reunion ever — and the first in the United States — of these scrolls saved from long-gone synagogues throughout what is now the Czech Republic.

“This is an image none of us will ever forget,” Rabbi Joshua Davidson, senior rabbi of Temple Emanu-El, told the crowd of more than 700.

The gathering of Torah scrolls marked the opening of a new and related exhibition in Temple Emanu-El’s Bernard Museum of Judaica, “The Guiding Hand: An Exhibition of Torah Pointers from Past and Present.”
