Czech Scrolls in London

The Czech Memorial Scrolls Museum is located in West London at Kent House, the home of Westminster Synagogue. It tells the inspiring story of the survival and second life of 1,564 Torah scrolls from Bohemia and Moravia, where a rich Jewish culture had once thrived before Nazi occupation. The scrolls arrived in London from Prague in 1964 and have undergone restoration and, in some cases, distribution to their rightful communities. The exhibits include some of the remaining scrolls, as well as a display of Torah binders dating from the 18th century. Visits are by appointment only.
