Czech Memorial Scrolls
TBI is the proud custodian of 3 of over 1500 scrolls that survived the Shoah after being housed in the Jewish Quarter of the Czech capital. While we are one of very few communities responsible for 3 scrolls, we form part of an important network of over 1000 scroll-holders, after they were brought to London in 1964 and subsequently spread around the world.
Two of TBI’s scrolls are in good condition and are able to be used as they were intended – they are read from on occasion during services. One of the scrolls is quite damaged and we do not use this, but rather have this on display.
Our scrolls are on permanent loan from the Memorial Scrolls Trust in London – you can find out more about them here: www.memorialscrollstrust.org
