Funding, in part, for the arrangement and description of this collection was provided by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.
Leonard Troupp was born in Brooklyn, New York on April 24, 1946. He grew up in Queens, New York, where his family was part of Temple Sholom (Floral Park, N.Y.). As a teen, he was president of Long Island Federation of Temple Youth and vice-president of the North American Federation of Temple Youth. Troupp was ordained at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 1973 and started his rabbinic career as the assistant rabbi of the Isaac M. Wise Temple in Cincinnati. After four years there, he returned to New York, and became co-director of National Federation of Temple Youth for four years. In 1981, Troupp became rabbi of the Nassau Community Temple of West Hempstead, New York. After six years, Troupp left West Hempstead to become rabbi of Temple Beth David (Commack, N.Y.) in 1987, where he served until retirement.
This collection consists primarily of materials related to the Dobris Torah and Petr Herrman. To commemorate Temple Beth David's receipt of a Torah that once belonged to the Jewish community of Dobris, the congregation invited Petr Herrman (the only Holocaust survivor from Dobris) to mark this event. Included in the collection are photographs and documents used in a display on the history of the Jewish community of Dobris, together with honors presented to Herrman and Temple Beth David from congressman and state legislators in honor of Herrman's reunion with the Torah from his community. Also included is a limited amount of personal papers and correspondence of Leonard B. Troupp.
This collection is arranged in a single series.
