Torah Parchment Laid to Rest

Many Torah scrolls that survived the Holocaust intact will be buried Wednesday after becoming irreparably damaged. Roughly 150 parchments are to be buried in the Masaot Yitzchak cemetery near Kiryat Malachi.

Or Etzion Yeshiva head Rabbi Chaim Druckman is expected to take part in the burial, as will Rabbi Meir Nehorai.

Some of the scrolls are 150 years old.
