Sendoff for Tribecan’s Torah

Rick Landman, above, holds a Torah his grandfather gave him on Nov. 9, the anniversary of Kristallnact. Landman, a Tribeca resident, had loaned his Torah to the Beth Simchat Torah congregation in Greenwich Village. He donated it to Congregation Beth Shalom in Munich and after the service, he and Beth Shaolm’s Adrian Schell boxed the scroll. Landman, who was told in Hebrew school that two men would never be married in front of a Torah, waited until he found a German synagogue that was open to gays before agreeing to send the Torah back to Germany.
