Iceland Jewish Community Celebrates Its First Permanent Torah Scroll

(JNS) The Jewish community in Reykjavik, Iceland, celebrated the completion and inauguration of the island’s first permanent Torah scroll this week. Last Thursday, U.S. Ambassador to Iceland Jeffrey Ross Gunter, who is Jewish, hosted at the embassy a reception to celebrate and honor the historic occasion.

The Torah scroll was donated by Adina Krausz from Zurich, Switzerland, who chose to surprise her husband for his 50th birthday by giving a Torah to a community that did not have one.
