Currently, many of these items are sitting in a room in boxes. A few of the items are in a display but need to be covered in order to protect them from destructive light. GIAL would like to have all these treasures on display to share with others. In order to protect these historical documents, secure, fire-resistant, UV filtering and climate controlled display cases are needed. Kosher Torah scroll displays are $3,000 each and book display cases are $7,350 each. Two of each type are needed.
