Prague’s synagogue gets new Torahs

Reuters PRAGUE (Reuters) — Prague’s medieval Old-New Synagogue received two new Torah scrolls on Sunday, the first ones since World War II shattered the country’s once-thriving Jewish community.

The Torahs, funded by donations to the Prague Jewish community, were written in Israel and brought into the synagogue in a ceremony that included scripting of the final letters by guests and members of the community, and a street dance.
