The New Israel Fund has been holding an event at Kent House, and participants were offered the opportunity to have a brief tour of the MST Museum. Among the guests this afternoon was Professor Menachem Lorberbaum, Professor of Jewish Philosophy at Tel Aviv University. As he walked past MST #514 from Lostice, displayed in a case in the centre of the main exhibition room, he noted that the scroll was open to his Bar Mitzvah portion. He told us a little about the portion, and then chanted a few verses. When was the last time that someone read from this scroll? It was a precious moment.
