RESCUED FROM THE ASHES OF KRISTALLNACHT

RESCUED FROM THE ASHES OF KRISTALLNACHT

  • RESCUED FROM THE ASHES OF KRISTALLNACHT

  • On the night of Kristallnacht (November 9, 1938), Isaac Schwartz, a 14-year-old boy in Hamburg, Germany risked his life to rescue a Torah scroll from the ashes of a Nazi bonfire. For 78 years the scroll lay in disrepair, until this 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. Join us as we welcome this historic Torah to Chabad of Novato:

    The time of Jewish unity and community is so important especially now! Every seven years is a Hakhel year. In ancient times, during a Hakhel year, Jews would stream to Jerusalem to unite in the Holy Temple, and hear Torah from the king.

    We are in the Hakhel year. Today, you are the king. We each need to play the leadership roles! You have the power to unite Jews. Let's unite with the Hakhel Torah on Saturday, Feb 27.
