The Torah, Mishkan’s first when the congregation was created in 1988, comes from Uherske Hradiste, a small city in the Czech Republic’s province of Moravia.

This service will be co-led by Rabbi Shawn Zevit. The week’s parasha, Vayakhel will be read from the Shoah scroll. Carol Towarnicky will deliver the d’var torah, and Ron Goldwyn will describe the history of the Jews of Uherske Hradiste, and update the international Torah rescue effort that continues to this day.

All in attendance will join in reading the names of more than 200 martyred Jewish residents of Uherske Hradiste and say kaddish for them, perhaps the only time or place where these men, women and children are remembered.
