Warsaw Torah Gift Recalls Uprising

RUTH E. GRUBER

Special to the Jewish News

Warsaw/JTA

W arsaw's Jewish community
has a new Torah scroll.
Donated by a congrega-
tion in Chicago, the Torah was
installed in the city's Nozyk
Synagogue in a gala ceremony that
was part of commemorations marking

the 60th anniversary of the Warsaw
Ghetto Uprising.
Visiting Israeli President Moshe Katsav
carried the scroll into the synagogue after
it was brought through the streets of the
city under a chuppah, or canopy.
"This was the first such event in the
postwar history of Polish Jewry," said
Michael Schudrich, rabbi of Warsaw
and Lodz.
The Nozyk Synagogue is the only one

of prewar Warsaw's . more that 200 syna-
gogues to have survived the Holocaust.
It is used regularly today by the city's
small, but active Jewish community.
-The joyful procession began at the
site of Warsaw's Great Synagogue,
which was destroyed by the Germans
on May 16, 1943. A huge skyscraper
now stands on the spot.
"The destruction of the Great
Synagogue was to testify that Jewish
life in Warsaw had been killed,"
Schudrich said.

"We were supposed to no longer
exist, not in Warsaw, not anywhere in
Poland, and — had the plans of the
Nazis been completed — not any-
where in the world. Yet, 60 years later,
we are there. We rebuilt our commu-
nity. We endure."
The ceremony was attended by the
mayor of Warsaw, former Foreign
Minister Wladyslaw Bartoszewski, a
Righteous Gentile; the papal nuncio to
Poland; and representatives of the pres-
ident and prime minister of Poland. ❑
