The silver Torah finials consist of a shaft,a body and an apex.
The cylindrical tapering shaft is encircled at the bottom and top by a ring. The shaft bears an inscription in square linear letters which reads from base towards the top:
"הק' )הקדש( לק"ק )לקהל קדוש( שלום##ריינה ריפארדו##כח חיים הי"ו )השם ישמרה ויצילה( שנת 3665"
"Dedicated to the holy congregation Shalom Rayna Ripardo............... may the Lord protect her and save her the year 5663 (1903)"
The hexagonal tower-shaped body is mounted over an upside down dome decorated with a pattern of a six petals flower set within an arch. Six rings are attached to the upper edges of the dome and carry chains with bells. The facets are decorated with triangled shaped open windows surmounted by a flower and framed symmetricaly by stems and leaves. The stems radiate from a vase with three flowers. Pairs of twisted columns flank either side of the facets and bear arches which are filled with a conch and a flower in its center. The upper part of the body is a dome, decorated with a pattern of a flower within an arch. Between the arches there is a grooved leaf. The apex is bud shaped enclosed by petal leaves.
