Police are investigating after Torah scrolls was stolen from the home of two rabbis.
A grey metal cabinet was taken from the Mill Hill house of Rabbi Dr Jackie Tabick and Rabbi Larry Tabick on Wednesday night.
It contained two Torah scrolls that belong to the Shir Hayim Reform community in Hampstead.
Rabbi Jackie said: “We imagine that the thieves will have been most disappointed when they opened the cabinet. No jewellery, just two scrolls. And we assume that they probably have thrown away the cabinet and the scrolls.”
Police are encouraging people to look out for the scrolls which may have been discarded in the local area. One has a blue mantle, the other red, both with gold embroidered Hebrew letters.
If anyone has information on their whereabouts they are encouraged to contact the local police on the 101 non-emergency number.
