NEW YORK — A 150-year-old Torah, hidden for a half-century in the former Soviet Union, was paraded through New York's streets yesterday on its way to its new home at a Brooklyn synagogue.
Many in the procession of hundreds of former Soviet Jews sang English, Hebrew, Yiddish and Russian songs as the foot-high scroll was taken to the Friends of Refugees of Eastern Europe Synagogue.
Senya Dovidov, 68, a one-time shoe factory worker in Latvia, gave the Torah to the synagogue. Mr. Dovidov brought the scroll with him when he came to the United States in 1995.
