It’s a miracle.
Someone returned four Torah scrolls worth $240,000 that were stolen from a Midwood shul earlier this week.
Surveillance video from the Avenue O Synagogue shows a man roll up and unload the handwritten holy texts from a minivan around 12:30 am on Friday.
The man, who does not appear to be wearing anything to cover his face or disguise himself, carefully places the four tomes at the foot of some stairs leading into the shul. The sacred scrolls appear to be covered in a garbage bag to protect them from rain, video shows.
Police confirmed the scrolls are in the synagogue’s possession, but no one from the house of worship was immediately available to comment.
The scrolls went missing around 4:30 am on Oct. 25 — amid Simchat Torah, a Jewish holiday celebrating the holy texts.
Police have not made any arrests and the investigation is ongoing, officials said.
