The following question was received at the JTS library:
I would like to find more information on the Synagogue Rescue Project. An organization that existed in the 1970s which gathered Judaica objects (including Torah scrolls) from abandoned and deserted synagogues in and around NY. I would like to know who founded this organization and how long it existed.
We invite any readers of the blog who have information on this organization to "join the conversation" by posting the information in our "comments" section. Thank you.
