The cloth's borders are decorated with a row of rhomboids situated between two silver bands.A heart formed with branches encloses a dedicatory inscription written in rounded filled letters: "וערבה לה' מנחת מרדכי בן רפאל בן ובניוא]...[ אסתר ובניו ואחיו שלמה ולען)לעילוי נשמת( ואמו תמך)תהיה מנוחתה כבוד(". "And guarantor to the Lord/the present of Mordehai the son/of Rafael the son of Yav[...]/Ester and his sons and brothers/ Shlomo and for the exaltation of the soul of his father and mother may her rest be honoured". A Star^of^David decorates the inscription's bottom part. The bottom part is decorated with a seven branched menorah and with a geometrical pattern composed by rhomboids on each side of it.
