Title: Temple Adas Israel's Holocaust Torah Re-Dedication
Sub Title: Sag Harbor, New York
Date: August 24, 2012
Time: 7:30 PM   
Location: Temple Adas Israel
Street Address: Elizabeth Street and Atlantic Avenue
  Sag Harbor, NY 11963
Description: Temple Adas Israel's Holocaust Torah Re-Dedication in Sag Harbor, New York.

After a year-long fund raising campaign and restoration of the Torah, Temple Adas Israel will re-dedicate its 150 years old "orphan" Holocaust Torah at a Shabbat ceremony on Friday August 24th at the Temple. This historic celebration will be preceded by a march into the Temple with the Torah. The procession begins at 7:30PM. The entire community is welcome to share in this sacred and joyful event.

Forty eight years ago, 19 years after the last German troops had surrendered in Prague, 1564 Torah scrolls arrived in London representing hundreds of Jewish communities in Bohemia and Moravia that had been wiped out in the Holocaust. For many years, the scrolls lay unused and unattended in a Prague synagogue that had been used as a warehouse. They were then shipped across Europe, arriving at the Westminster Synagogue in London on February 7, 1964. In the years since then, the Torahs have been sent to Jewish communities in Great Britain and twenty other countries of the Western world, including West Germany, to be cherished as memorials to a tragic past but at the same time to be read and studied by a new generation of Jews, the guarantors of Jewish survival and rebirth.

In 1995, ten members of Temple Adas Israel donated $1500 and brought one of these Torahs from England. It was on display in our Temple until a year ago when Rabbi Leon A. Morris, determined he would fulfill the conditions of the Memorial Scroll Trust––“When a Memorial Scroll is entrusted to a congregation on long term loan, it is on the understanding that the congregation makes a long term commitment to give this Memorial Scroll a prominent and meaningful role in the spiritual and educational life of the congregation…Each Scroll is a messenger from a martyred community that depends on its new congregation to ensure that they are remembered as individuals, and that their local Jewish heritage is cherished”––that the restoration project began.
Before this could be done, however, the Torah needed to be restored. The faded letters and torn parchment needed to be restored by an experienced scribe – or sofer – to bring it back to a “kosher” condition so it could once again be used in worship services. This was an expensive proposition requiring a dedicated fundraising effort that involved the Temple and its extended community. With major fundraising accomplished, the restoration has been completed. And this re-dedication ceremony will celebrate the Scroll that can now play a prominent and meaningful part in the religious and educational life of our community.
