Jewish Congregations in Poland Ship over 200 Scrolls of Law to Israel Chief Rabbinate

The Jewish Religious Congregations of Poland have shipped more than 200 Scrolls of the Law to the offices of the Chief Rabbinate in Jerusalem, it was reported here. Many other Scrolls which were desecrated and mutilated during the Nazi occupation of Poland were buried this week, in accordance with Jewish tradition, in the Jewish cemetery here. These Scrolls were beyond repair, it was stated.
