Rescued from Kristallnacht

Rescued from Kristallnacht

Saturday, Dec 31, 10:30am
followed by Kiddush Lunch 

For wherever we can put something longer..
On the night of November 9, 1938, the deafening sounds of gunshots, the smashing of glass, and the cries of a mob rioting and looting filled the Jewish Quarter. 

Isaac Schwartz, a young boy of only 14, risked his life to douse a bonfire full of Torah Scrolls, shawls, prayer books, and other Jewish artifacts that Nazi soldiers had set aflame in a square in Hamburg. From the ashes he managed to rescue a single Torah scroll.

For 78 years the scroll rescued on Kristallnacht laid in disrepair, until last year when the Torah was restored and dedicated to honor the lives of those murdered in the Holocaust and in celebration of the revival of Jewish life and Torah study across the globe.
