My cousins Lonna and Marvin of Kansas recently
obtained a Romanian Torah
that survived the Holocaust, and they have presented
it to their new
shul. They are now trying to find the history of
this Torah and to link it
to Jews who lived in Klowz(?).
The name of the town seems to indicate that you wrote
it down phonetically. Could it be maybe Cluj? In
that word the "j" sounds like the "s" in "measure".
