As the second World War approached, many Jews hid their congregational Torah scrolls for safekeeping. Some of these were found after the war in basements, attics, behind walls, and even in large repositories. Today, some are in active use while others are displayed in synagogue glass cases or in museums. Join Alanna Cooper for a lecture that explores American Jews’ intense interest in Holocaust scrolls, the rituals designed to honor them, and the ethical questions around their possible misuse, as well as the implications of a forgery market.
