Celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Synagogue
The celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Synagogue on 9 Septemeber '09 was an extremely emotional experience for the entire Jewish community of Bulgaria. It was much more than a celebration of the existence of a building. It was an event in which Bulgarian Jews were able to express their pride and identity as Jews with their beautiful and colorful tradition. Both many rabbinical leaders from Europe and Israel in addition to Bulgaria's president, Georgi Parvanov were amongst the present.
It is an event that we will carry in our hearts for a long time. One of the special moments of the celebration was the inauguration of a "Sefer Torah" that was donated to the community by the Eurasian Congress of Safrut. It was written in the 1940's in the Kaukusus, and completely restored by a proffesional scribe of the organization, in 2009. The worshippers of the Synagogue feel honored and delighted to be continue to be attending a Synagogue in it's original glory, and to be reading from an additional beautiful Sefer Torah donated in it's honor.
