Peninsula Sinai Congregation’s scroll from České Budějovice (MST #685, left), dressed in its beautiful High Holiday finery. Peninsula Sinai’s “Olomouc Scroll” (MST #740, right) was returned to Olomouc in October, 2017 at the behest of the Memorial Scrolls Trust and in partnership with the Olomouc community and Peninsula Sinai Congregation. The scroll had a blue band around the outside when this picture was taken, shortly before the High Holidays, indicating it was “passul” or ritually unfit. Through the efforts of Sofer Rabbi Moshe Druin and his “Sofer on Site” team, the scroll was completely repaired and rendered Kosher for ritual use in a ceremony in Olomouc in October, 2017 witnessed by hundreds of community members and witnesses from overseas.
