Welcome to the official website of The Czech Torah Network!

The Czech Torah Network is an education organization dedicated to rememberance and Jewish spiritual continuity by connecting synagogues and religious institutions that have Czech Torah Scrolls. During the past 35 years, over 1,500 Czech Torahs have been rescued and distributed by the Czech Memorial Scrolls Centre of London, England. They are now on permanent loan throughout the world. 

The Czech Torah Network website is updated and maintained regularly for our users and visitors. We shall continue to expand and develop the site to serve people everywhere to learn about this wonderful cause.
