Large Sterling Silver Jewish Yad Torah Pointer


A fine and impressive Jewish Yad known as a Torah pointer handcrafted in sterling silver; bulbous knob handle decorated with embossed acanthus leave designs, with a traditional pointed finger hand on the other end. Marked: RABBI MARTIN PENN. Yad measures approx. 11” long, sterling silver chain, approximate 34” long included. A Yad (Hebrew: ???) (Yiddish: ?????), literally, "hand," is a Jewish ritual pointer, popularly known as a Torah pointer, used by the reader to follow the text during the Torah reading from the parchment Torah scrolls. Beyond its practical usage, the Yad ensures that the parchment is not touched during the reading. There are several reasons for this: handling the parchment renders one ritually impure and the often-fragile parchment is easily damaged. Moreover, the vellum parchment does not absorb ink so touching the scroll with fingers will damage the lettering. Great find for the Judaic collector!
