Torah scrolls stolen during celebrations — by congregation’s rabbi

The Mike Report has no comment to make, other than to announce that there is a job opening for a Rabbi in the Negev town of Moshav Brosh.

It was the perfect crime, except for the getting caught part.

Seven torah scrolls were stolen from a synagogue and replaced them with rolls of paper and cardboard — by the congregation’s rabbi, police say – during Simchat Torah celebrations on Monday night.

The incident happened  in the small Negev town of Moshav Brosh. According to police, as revelers danced with Torah scrolls during the customary celebrations of the Simchat Torah festival, which began on Monday night, thieves made off with several of the precious parchments estimated to be worth about NIS 500,000 ($129,523).
