Rabbi Menachem and the lost Torahs

Christian Science Monitor correspondent Cathryn J. Prince paints document restoration expert Rabbi Menachem Youlus as a latter-day Indiana Jones in her May 16, 2007 report. Rabbi Menachem travels the world to find and restore sacred but damaged Torahs.

In addition to patiently retracing the brush-strokes of the original scribes, the rabbi has been known to dig for, smuggle, and make deals for the sacred books.
