Torah Pointers




The Torah pointer, or yad, is indispensable in protecting priceless original Torah scrolls. It is used to help readers keep track of their current place during extended sessions reading or reciting from the ancient text. It has iconic status in the Jewish faith, helping readers of authentic parchment Torah scrolls maintain ritualistic purity by avoiding contact with the sacred scroll and preserve the priceless and delicate vellum parchment and ink from damage resulting from manual handling. Using this ceremonial pointer when reading is considered a timeless hallmark of reverence and respect for the Torah. Zion Judaica celebrates the integral role of the yad in Jewish culture by offering a stunning collection of ceremonial Torah pointers in a variety of styles.
