New Torah Scroll in Shiloach

There is something particularly joyous about dedicating a Torah scroll in a synagogue in a revived Jewish community.

The neighborhood of Silwan in eastern Jerusalem was a predominantly Yemenite Jewish area called Kfar Shiloach. However, in 1938, after one of the Arab pogroms in Jerusalem, the British forced the Yemenite Jews out of their homes instead of protecting them.

Now, decades later, a fledgling Jewish community is growing month by month.

Recently, the community celebrated the addition of a new Torah scroll to the original synagogue complex, which was looted and destroyed in 1938.

Watch! You can feel the joy!
