Our Torah - Memorial Torah Scroll #529
At TBC, we are privileged to have Memorial Torah Scroll #529 which was written in 1832. It is one of the Torahs from the town of Ceske Budejovice, once the capitol of Southern Bohemia, part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The thriving Jewish community there built an ornate synagogue in 1868. On April 18, 1942, over 900 Jews of this city were deported to death camps, & 3 months later the Nazis destroyed the synagogue.
This board contains information about this historic Jewish community & Torah.
