Torah that survived Holocaust finds home in Miami

Posted: Wednesday, September 16, 2009 10:02 am

In this Aug. 28, 2009, photo, Rabbi Danny Marmorstein of Congregation Ahavat Olam carries their newly obtained Torah in the Synagogue in Miami. Marmorstein uses the Yiddish word "bashert" to describe how a Torah created in 19th-century Eastern Europe survived the Nazi regime in near-perfect condition and landed a world away at his tiny synagogue. The 131-year-old Torah is being celebrated at Congregation Ahavat Olam for the first time on Rosh Hashanah, offering a powerful symbol on the endurance of the Jewish faith.
