Student Creates Case for Torah Scroll that Survived the Holocaust
Last year through LIGHT Education Initiative, Shaler Area High School senior Timi and a few friends built a large museum display case in Mr. Wells' class for a Torah scroll that was donated to the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh after being saved from destruction during the Holocaust. The Center has curated a classroom-sized Holocaust museum exhibit at the Chatham University library that includes the Torah case, along with several other artifacts from the Holocaust and the Tree of Life tragedy.

LIGHT, Leadership through Innovation in Genocide and Human Rights Teaching, was founded by SAHS teacher Nick Haberman. The group exists to connects K-12 students to community members of all ages through themes within human rights and genocide, like being an upstander, making responsible choices, social and environmental justice, kindness and love, and volunteerism and humility. Timi’s work embodies the mission and spirit of LIGHT.
