Yavneh Academy Observes Yom HaShoah

Fourth grade and ECD students viewed a Torah scroll which was rescued from the Nazis in Vyskov, Czechoslovakia, and presented to Yavneh Academy by the class of 1985. The curtain for the Torah scroll showcase is only raised once a year, on Yom Hashoah. Mr. Azi Steiner sat in front of the Torah and sang a very moving song, “Place Where I Belong.” The song tells the experiences and feelings of a Torah scroll in the first person, from its creation by a scribe in Kiev and regular use there in a shul, to its eventual resting place in an American museum.
