"The reason for having two scrolls is that certain holidays demand that you read from certain sections of a scroll," Natkin said.Because the scrolls are so large, finding a passage isn't like flipping through the pages of the Bible.It can take an hour to 90 minutes to unroll a scroll to the proper place."Now, we'll be able to read the portion of the week, which currently is in the book of Leviticus, from one scroll as well as the portion which is special for Passover, Exodus 12, from the other," Natkin said.From the latter Scriptures, members will hear the story of how the ancient Hebrews were delivered by God from slavery in Egypt during the first Passover nearly 3,500 years ago.Then they will meditate on how that passage through the Red Sea put the Jewish people on a centuries-long path filled with struggle, religious persecution and even genocide."Just as Passover honors our ancestors, the scroll will honor our ancestors.And just as our celebration of Passover makes the tradition come alive for us, the presence of the new scroll will make the experience more alive to us," Natkin said.
