Anshe Tikvah is honored to have been entrusted
with MST #1502 Orphan Scroll.

What Is an Orphan Scroll?
This does not have an easy answer.In 1942, curators in the Central Jewish Museum in Prague, sent out a call to the Jews in the regions of Bohemia and Moravia, Czechoslovakia, to send their Judaica and artifacts to the museum for safe keeping. After the defeat of the Nazis, the scrolls were taken to The Michle Synagogue, near Prague, where they remained for twenty years.In 1964, after the establishment of The Memorial Scrolls Trust, the scrolls were taken to the Westminster Synagogue in London where they are housed and cared for.  
A small museum in Kent House displays the work of the Trust and tells the history of the scrolls. Of the 1,564 scrolls, 216 lost their identity and could not be traced to any community. They became known as the “orphan scrolls.

When Anshe Tikvah was first established, we applied for and were accepted to adopt Orphan Scroll #1502.  In memory of the communities that Orphan Scroll #1502 represents, Anshe Tikvah has adopted the Czech cities of Straznice and Knezdub.In 1997, two of our members, Phyllis & Bob Felsenberg, who were connected to the Czech Republic traveled there. They collected many artifacts and photographs of the synagogues and cemeteries and donated them to Anshe Tikvah.

We show honor to Orphan Scroll #1502 as all our B’nai Mitzvah read from the Torah. Many of our student’s great grandparents are survivors of the Holocaust.We offer worship services at many Assisted Living and Nursing Homes throughout the year.  Residents that are survivors of the Holocaust are very touched to see Scroll #1502.We are honored and privileged that Scroll #1502 has been entrusted to us. Just as we have done in the past, throughout the coming years, we will continue to honor the memories connected to Orphan Scroll #1502 during Shabbat and Yizkor services and on Yom HaShoah.
