Photo Gallery | Mid-South group to reflect on Torah vandalism
A group of Mid-Southerners are responding to hate with education.
The Torah scroll was vandalized in a Jackson, Tenn. hotel last month.
It belonged to the Margolin Hebrew Academy located in Memphis.
Police said 24 year-old Justin Baker is responsible for the act.
Now the Margolin Hebrew Academy is hosting a community wide event.
During the event they will reflect on the Torah vandalism.
They will also discuss ways to promote understanding and an end to intolerance.
- The event is Monday at the Baron Hirsch Congregation.
- It's located at 400 South Yates Road, and starts at 7 p.m.
