We were very fortunate to have had 24 rescued Torahs in the Holocaust Torah Procession last year; we hope to have more this year. Everyone who attended last year commented how moved they were seeing all of the rescued Torahs at the commemoration and what a reminder they are to future generations.  It’s a very powerful image, please see photo below. It was a honor to have each of the Torahs in the procession and to learn about each of the Torah’s history. 

 

This ceremony is a joint effort of the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center and the Westchester Jewish Council and will includes remarks by a survivor and elected officials.
