On eBay - A Wallet Made From A Sefer Torah


BS"D Antiquarian:

"Here is an original very sad remembrance of the horrors and tragedy of the Jewish nation in the Holocaust.

This parchment had been cut out of a Torah scroll before the Nazis burned it in a synagogue and folded into a wallet. It measures 20 x 16 cm. and has two pockets. "

that needs to be picked up by the museum immediately. the holocaust museum in d.c. should be notified and the item purchased asap.

Why a museum and not a geniza?

Why is this for sale on ebay in the first place and not just being buried in a Jewish cemetery?

B"H

Nazis used Torah scrolls for all kinds of purposes. If you go to the Jewish Museum in Frankfurt / Germany, you can even find envelopes made from Torah parchment.
Letters put in Torah envelopes were sent home to Germany from German soldiers stationed in Poland, Russia etc.

I just find it interesting. that its not by accident it says in those pesukim "Tzeddek Tzeddek Tirdof". Its clearly a tochacha from H-shem to be honest in our dealings bec. if not the reshaim will make the laws of evil.
