The attached video is the emotional moment that Palm Beach Fire County Firefighters rescued a 100-year-old Sefer Torah from a burning home in Boca Raton last week.

There were heavy flames and smoke coming from the roof when firefighters arrived, but they were able to extinguish the blaze.

At the homeowners’ request, firefighters went back into the home to retrieve the Torah. Although the house is badly damaged, firefighters say they were grateful to save something that means so much to the family.

  1. Interesting. Last week was parshas Korach. In a house with a sefer Torah, does one need kosher mezuzos ? Wonder if they had and if so, when was the last time they were checked.

  2. If I’m not mistaken it states in the Torah that women need to cover elbows and if married they also need to cover their hair.
