New Torah Scroll Links and Inspires Embattled Long Beach, L.I., Jewish Community

There are few acts of vandalism or theft more traumatic to a Jewish community than the loss or destruction of a Torah scroll, so when two scrolls were stolen on the very same day that Chabad of the Beaches moved into its new synagogue a year ago, the community was in shock. Although each Torah scroll is unique, and in that sense cannot be replaced, the bringing to life of a new Torah has been redemptive for the Beaches Jewish community.
