Beit Centrum Ki Tov is a new Progressive Community initiated by Beit Polska Members, in Warsaw’s heart.
For many years there were plans to increase Beit Warszawa’s activities in central Warsaw. In November 2015 ten Beit Polska Members announced their wish to form a Warsaw Centre community. Beit Centrum Ki Tov opened its doors in Warsaw’s heart on 1st Nisan 5776 (8th April 2016), near four other Synagogues (Chabad, Orthodox, Gregorian and non-affiliated Reform). Beit Warszawa is 10 km from the centre.
Soon after our November announcement, supported by 3 Rabbis and Severyn Aszkenazy (main Beit Warszawa sponsor), we started to organise. The 3 room premises were easily found. David Sarnat in the USA heard our Sefer Torah request and passed our emotional plea to Samuel M. Bernstine, President of Temple Hadar Israel, Newcastle, Pennsylvania. In Early March the Temple Board agreed to donate a Sefer Torah which had travelled to the USA from Poland a 111 years ago. During Purim celebrations the Scroll was carried across the States to Rabbi Haim Dov Beliak in Los Angeles. Then our Rabbi brought the gift to Warsaw. The Scroll was greeted by Beit Warszawa and spent its 1st Shabbat in Poland nestling between two Sifrei Torah.
Meanwhile, together with Zivah Nativ, we were furnishing, koshering and preparing our Italian Style Synagogue for our Sefer Torah’s homecoming.
