HAFTR welcomed six Torah scrolls


HAFTR Lower School students welcomed six Torah scrolls into their home with song, dance and prayers. Rabbi Gedaliah Oppen, HAFTR High School Judaic Studies Principal, and several HAFTR High School Students brought six sifrei Torah to be temporarily housed in the Lower School Beit Midrash. Each of the scrolls was recovered from a local synagogue after Hurricane Sandy. One of the six Torah Scrolls was recovered for the second time, as it originally came from Prague and was rescued during the Holocaust. All of the scrolls will eventually be returned to the appropriate synagogues once the synagogues rebuild their facilities.
