The Torah is the property of Kurt Riess of Seattle, formerly of Baut- zen, Germany, and is the only sur- viving remnant of a Jewish syna- gogue in that city burned by the Nazis on the night of November 10, 1938. In Riess' family the Torah was an heirloom. He had removed it from the syn- agogue only a short while before the tragedy occurred and brought it with him to Seattle. When Sol Esfeld, War Service Committee chairman, carried the Torah into the chapel, lanked by a military bodyguard, the entire congregation rose and recited the "Sh'ma Yis- reel." Private Leon of Brooklyn accepted the Torah from Rabbi Zuckerman. The Herzl Congregation choir, under the direction of Harry Kraft, sang during the regular Sabbath Eve service, which was conducted by Chaplain Feldheym and Private Swartz from New York City. Riess had loaned the Torah to Herzl Conservative Congregation. which in turn loaned it to Seattle Lodge for the presentation. It was taken to Fort Lewis on Dec. 10 by Rabbi Franklin Cohn of Herzl. --PAY YOUR DUES-- List Servicemen Honored In Book NEW YORK (JTA)--The second edition of a booklet containing the names and deeds of service men of Jewish faith who have been deco- rated for valor since Pearl Harbor was issued by the National Jewish Welfare Board's Bureau of War Records.
