Happy Tu Bishvat!

This could be one of the all-time great Jewish cartoons! It is by Yaakov Kirschen, and celebrates the upcoming holiday of Tu Bishvat, aka the New Year of the Trees. Here at the MST we love to think about how what we do now will give sustenance to the future - much like planting seeds and trees. Wishing you all a happy Tu Bishvat!

A New Year's Resolution: to visit the MST in 2013!

The Scrolls Museum on the third floor of Kent House in Knightsbridge is one of London's best-kept secrets. We'd like to change that, and let everyone know we are here and waiting to meet you. If you have an interest in history, Judaism, Torah scrolls; or want to learn something from a world different to the one you usually inhabit, come and see us this year. The photograph above is of a recent article in the Hendon Reform Synagogue magazine and describes a typical visitor's experience.

We are open on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10 am and 4 pm. Entry is free (although of course there is a box discreetly displayed for voluntary donations). E-mail us at for further information, or leave us a message at 0207 584 3741.

See you soon!
