There was a celebration in the streets of Brooklyn Sunday as two Torah scrolls smuggled out of the former Soviet Union were donated to a local synagogue.

Singing, dancing and music accompanied the scrolls in a procession through Brighton Beach. The two scrolls were kept hidden during years of Communist rule and used for Sabbath services.

The families who smuggled them donated them to a synagogue.

The scrolls underwent a $10,000 restoration.
