In a town not far from Warsaw, lived a small Jewish community. As the violent roundup of Jews for transport to death camps began, a courageous member of this small community ran to the synagogue, took the Torah and wrapped it in blankets.
After digging a pit in a nearby barn, he placed the wrapped Sefer Torah in the ground and covered it with soil. He prayed that one day he would have the chance to rescue this holy book.
The years passed...
After surviving the chambers of death, this heroic man returned to the barn, and retrieved the Torah from the ground. Later it was brought to Israel.
As a symbol of being rescued from the flames this precious Torah was donated to the Wolfson Museum.
At the museum it was realized that the Torah had to go through a serious restoration, and was transferred to "Machon Ot" - the world's leading authority in Torah scroll restoration.
There it was decided that this historical Torah is irreparable...
From there it was lent to our studio, and under the lens of a unique scanner the Torah was scanned. Each Parsha getting its own treatment, we developed a "one of a kind" Bar Mitzvah Gift.
