The community is invited to a free presentation by Rabbi Dr. Michael J. Shire of Hebrew College on the myth of Hitler’s Jewish museum.

Synagogues all over the world have Torah scrolls from Moravia and Bohemia (now the Czech Republic) that are displayed as “Holocaust Torahs,” which were said to be confiscated by the Nazis for Hitler’s museum of an extinct Jewish race. Ten years ago, documents uncovered at the Jewish museum in Prague offered a completely different story with an underlying alternative message about Jewish survival and continuity. Come hear the true story about Josef Polak and the Czech Memorial Scrolls.

The lecture, co-sponsored by Lappin Foundation, Temple Ner Tamid, Temple Tiferet Shalom, and the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Salem State University, is free and open to all.
