Rediscovery of the Scrolls

‘Some scrolls live fortunate, happy lives. They are carried around during services… Rabbis dance, holding them aloft. Other scrolls are unlucky, pushed to the back of the ark, unloved, silent. Still other scrolls suffer a tragic fate and go through fire and suffering, die, or survive in a damaged condition. Yet, all contain the same sacred words, all are holy in the eye of the beholder.’

Rabbi Albert H. Friedlander, former rabbi of Westminster Synagogue
