Tracking the History of Eight Scrolls

In July 2015, Evelyn Lazare, a long-time member of Temple Sholom, volunteered to document the provenance of the eight Sifrei Torah housed in the synagogue’s ark, believing the process would take a few weeks at best. She submitted the final document to Rabbi Dan Moskowitz, Temple Sholom’s Senior Rabbi, in February 2016, and still maintains that it is a work in progress.

Evelyn’s presentation describes how she approached her role as Torah detective and includes the back-stories omitted from the more formal, written document.
