One Powerful Parchment

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/up_front/article/one_powerful_parchment_20031107

Jono Wagmeister's bar mitzvah adventure started at a friend's bat mitzvah in Atlanta last April, and took him on a virtual journey across the world and through centuries of Jewish history. It was in Atlanta that Jono first heard about the 1,564 scrolls the Nazis collected and catalogued for a future exhibit on the extinct race. In 1964 the decaying scrolls were transported to Westminster Synagogue in London, where they were repaired, catalogued and made available on loan to synagogues around the world through the Czech Memorial Scrolls Centre.
