Each year in mid-winter, Mishkan honors its Holocaust Torah and the destroyed Jewish community of Uherske Hradiste in the Czech Republic from which it came. The service is led by Rabbi Shawn and co-led by Carol Towarnicky, who will deliver the d’var Torah, and Ron Goldwyn, who describes the Torah’s history and the circumstances that brought it to Mishkan in 1988. The day’s parasha Mishpatim will be read from this Torah. At yahrzeit the congregation will share in the reading of names and remembrance of more than 200 Jews of Uherske  Hradiste who perished in the Shoah.
