Because of the sanctity of the Torah scroll, touching it with one’s hands is prohibited. Hence, Jews around the world use a pointer (yad) while reading from the Torah in public. In many communities it was customary to design the pointer in the shape of closed hand, with an extended forefinger guiding the reader along the text. This item was styled after a Torah pointer from Algeria that was dedicated as a gift to the local synagogue.SHOW MORE
