Writing a Torah for Each Congregation

Every year we start new communities in different cities in Poland. Each community needs a Torah and prayer books.

One of the Torahs pictured here was rescued in post-World War II Poland. Currently we are carrying it around the country to congregations awaiting their own Torot.

Another Torah scroll was donated to Beit Polska by Rabbi Ruth Gais and Rabbi John Schechter of Congregation B’nai Israel. The Torah’s new home is 
now Congregation Beit Trojmiasto in Poland.

Our most recent gift from a Conservative congregation Shaarei Tefilah in Norwood, Massachusetts is a beautiful 150-year old scroll. The Torah is unusually well written and comes with High Holiday and year-round decorative covers.
