A Torah scroll was dedicated in Bratislava last week, making it the first one to be completed in the country since the Holocaust, the Jerusalem Post reported.
The celebration took place during the bar mitzvah of the son of the local rabbi, Rabbi Baruch Myers, who established Chabad of Slovakia in 1993, the Jerusalem Post wrote.
The traditional Torah scroll procession made its way through the city, passing the Presidential Palace on its way to the Chabad Educational Center, which opened in late 2017, the Jerusalem Post reported.
“This is one of the most touching moments of my entire life,” said the president of the Bratislava Jewish Community, Dr. Tomas Stern, as he completed the final letters of the new Torah scroll, as quoted by the Jerusalem Post.
