Why is a Wooden Torah Pointer preferable for “laining” (reading from the Torah scroll)? A wooden “yad” is preferable for many reasons. It is lighter weight, its shape sits nicely in the hand and more important it is from a natural source which connects with the “klaf” (parchment), its ink and the process in which a “sefer Torah” (Torah Scroll) is prepared and written.
These lathe turned wooden Torah pointers range in styles. One is decorated with swarovski stones, one is decorated with decorated with wood burned designs and fitted with a sterling silver hand, one is offset turned entirely from wood. They all feature simple, clean, and sleek lines.
Appreciated by Torah readers. Each piece unique. This item makes a great Bat/Bar Mitzvah gift, or for anyone who “lains” (reads Torah for the community).
Dimension ranges:7-10 x 0.7D ” (18-25 x 2D cm)
Have a particular wood preference, I can make one especially for you. Contact Me with any question.
” Hi Amy, I received the yad (torah pointer) on Saturday and it’s perfect, exactly what I have been looking for. 😀 You did a wonderful job with it ( this Judaica gift for my son’s bar mitzvah) and I will certainly recommend your company (Etz-Ron-Handcrafted Wooden Judaica, Wood Art & Home Decor, Handmade Jewelry) to anyone else I know who is looking for something special like this. Thanks,” D.G., Basking Ridge, NJ
