Westminster Synagogue has two Torah scrolls on loan from the Memorial Scrolls Trust, both from Bohemia in the Czech Republic, one from Horažd’ovice and the other from Přeštice.  Each year, the Synagogue organises a comemmorative event between 22nd and 26th November to remember the lives of those people who were burtally murdered simply because they were Jewish

The Commemorative Service in 2021 will be held on Friday, 26th November and we are honoured that the Prague Jewish Museum will give us a presentation of the history of Czech Jewry, and that we’re able to welcome Rabbi David Maxa, who once trained with our community and is now founder and spiritual leader of Ec Chajim Synagogue in Prague. Rabbi David will be sharing his thoughts on the current and modern developments of the Jewish Community today.

This will be the first ever service to be held between Ec Chajim Praha and Westminster Synagogue, and we look forward to welcoming members of Ec Chajim community. I do hope you can join us for what is sure to be a moving and memorable evening. Click here for more information.
