Last week, on September 23, the Lviv Museum of the history of religion opened an exhibition called "Fragments", which exhibits artifacts belonging to the sacred culture of the Jewish people. A total of 22 items are presented: all of them are used during services in synagogues or at the homes of Jewish families. These are hanukkahs – lamps that are lit for eight days on one of the winter holidays; tzedakahs – boxes intended for donations; parokhet – a special cloth designed to curtain a Cabinet with sacred books.

One of the exhibits was the crown of the Torah of the XIX century. It is the most vivid embodiment of the exhibition's name, as it is made up of two fragments of different origin. Some items in the middle of the last century were in the synagogue "Yakub Glanzer Shul", then exhibited in various Lviv museums. There are also finds made during earthworks: people hid them during the Second world war. Addition to the main exhibition are photographs from the archive "Center for urban history."
