Saving a Torah

Wade Spees

Rabbi Menachem Youlis, of the Save a Torah Foundation, lets 81-year-old Charles Markowitz and his wife Gucia help him write a Hebrew character Wednesday in the restoration of a Torah that was rescued from a burning synagogue in Poland during World War II. Brith Sholom Beth Israel Rabbi Ari Sytner (background) helped organize the reception in the City Gallery.
