I will be vague on the details to remain as anonymous as possible, but today our community received a call about a Torah for sale at a thrift store. Long story short, it is from a community that was completely eradicated. It is a miracle it was found, and now! We spoke to an employee and even though it was receiving bids for a huge amount of money, the worker was moved to give it to our community after it was explained what the Torah is to us. My husband and I happen to be going to Israel next week. Tomorrow we will be doing our best to speak to Yad Vashem. It is a task so beyond anything I feel worthy of, but this time next week I could be cradling a Torah to Israel to delivered to be on display, a remnant of what was.

The Rabbis are meeting tomorrow to discuss how to do this if it does happen, so I'm not quite sure. I am kind of expecting to cradle it in my lap, but we will see what they and our community find most appropriate if it comes down to it.
