Yads (Torah Pointer)



The humble yad, or Torah pointer, has been used to help readers keep track of their current place during extended sessions reading or reciting from the ancient text. It has an important place in the Jewish faith, helping readers of parchment Torah scrolls maintain ritualistic purity by avoiding contact with the sacred scroll and preserve the often long treasured vellum parchment and delicate ink from damage resulting from manual handling. Using this ceremonial pointer is considered a mark of reverence and respect for the Torah. Zion Judaica celebrates the role of the yad in our culture by offering a stunning collection of authentic ceremonial sterling silver yad in a variety of styles.

Our traditional yad models feature an array of intricate design details as well as the customary pointing finger design at the leading tip. We carry .925 sterling silver yad in both classic and contemporary styles, with embellishments such as laser engraving and stylish spiral designs. Choose from our assortment of attractive yad display stands made from durable metal to show off your beautiful formal yad. We also offer a handsome bar mitzvah set including a Kiddush cup and tallit clips. It makes a thoughtful gift on this special day, giving the guest of honor all the tools he needs to make his transition into Jewish manhood. Our representatives eagerly anticipate helping you with your order of a yad from our store. At Zion Judaica, we make a point of making the finest sterling silver yad from around the world available to our loyal customers.
