Once a ceremonial item is dedicated to religious service, its holiness can never be removed," said Mel Urbach, during the World Council's presentation to the Conference on communal property.Urbach also called upon all forty four governments represented at the Conference to respect Jewish law on this issue so that holy ceremonial objects can be recovered and returned to their owners or, if heirless, to synagogues in need, especially those reopening in Eastern Europe.According to Urbach, several of the Conference delegates from Eastern Europe expressed their willingness to cooperate with the World Council in its efforts to trace and return Torah scrolls and other ceremonial artifacts lost since the Holocaust.
