This December we will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the final deportation of the community of Hermanuv Mestec, a town in the Pardubice Region of the Czech Republic, to Terezin (Theresienstadt). Our Torah scroll comes from that town and will be rededicated to commemorate this significant anniversary.

Speakers include:
Petr Papoušek, President of Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic
