A Torah scroll will be presented later this month at the sole remaining synagogue in the town of Oswiecim, Poland. Among those participating in the Aug. 30 dedication ceremony will be members of the Cherry Lane Minyon in Long Island, N.Y., which raised funds for the scroll. After the ceremony, participants will visit the nearby Auschwitz death camp. Groundbreaking for an educational and cultural center, to be built around the Oswiecim synagogue, is planned for November.
