Kamila Kopřivová is Czechia’s first ever female rabbi. She was ordained in September last year and has since served as a rabbi at the Westminster Synagogue at the Kent House in London. The building is also a home to Torah scrolls that were confiscated by the Nazis from Jewish communities in Bohemia, Moravia and Slovakia during the Second World War. They were acquired by a British art dealer and brought to England exactly 60 years this month.
