© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Unknown,

The rectangular Talith bag is opened on its upper side and closed by loops that are attached to the elongated front side of the bag. The buttons for closing are attached to its backside.

The front side of the bag is decorated with the arched Tables of the Covenant, bearing Ten Commandments depicted as the first ten letters of the Hebrew alphabet: five on each side. The branches of the seven-branched Menorah grow from the Tables of the Covenant so that the central branch appears between the two halves and two external concave branches flank it from the sides. The thin strip curves between the branches of the Menorah. Two additional short branches, growing from the Tables of the Covenant, flank it at its lower part.

The lower side of the Tables of the Covenant is decorated outside with a thin branch with scrolled edges. Two vertical bow-shaped tapering bands, connected by two thin crossed strips growing from their lower edge, flank the Tables of the Covenant.

An inscription “מזכרת ירושלם” “remembrance ofJerusalem” written in square-filled letters appears in the upper part of the bag, one word on the right side and the second on the left side. Six-petal flower is depicted between them in the center.

The bag is framed by a twisted rope, creating four loops on the corners.
