Nearly 100 people joined the Trustees of the Memorial Scrolls Trust at the Jewish Museum in Camden on Sunday for the launch of the new Travelling Exhibition and Education Pack. Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis offered some eloquent words of welcome, praising the work of the Trust. Magda Veselska brought greetings from the Jewish Museum in Prague, and Ruth-Anne Lenga introduced the Education Pack that she has produced for the MST. The pack may be downloaded here.
At the end of the day, the Travelling Exhibition was packed up and delivered to its first booking at West London Synagogue. If your community is interested in receiving this free exhibition about the Czech scrolls, please contact the MST for further details.
Many thanks to all those who helped to make this day possible, especially the Jewish Museum in Camden and Ben Rich. A small gallery of photographs from the afternoon may be viewed on the MST website here.
