Police recovered a $30,000 Torah that was inside a stolen car following a two-day search Monday.

Cops say the religious text that belonged to a member of the Congregation Agudath Sholom of Flatbush, was found intact inside the 2007 Toyota Corolla that was found near Avenue I and E. 10 Street.

Investigators are still looking for the thief who made off with the car Saturday.

The thief swiped the driver’s keys and wallet, which had been left somewhere in the synagogue, police said.

It’s unclear if the thief was aware the Torah was inside the car when he or she stole the vehicle.

The driver, who works at the synagogue, lost other personal items, including some credit cards and clothes, however cops didn’t say if they recovered those items when they found the Torah in the sedan.
