22 Custom
This silver dedicatory plaque is part of a group of unique sacred objects known as shadai'ot (shadai'a in singular). The custom of donating these plaques is common among the Greek Romaniot communities. The name shadai'a is derived from God’s name, "?? ???" (El Shadai = God Almighty) - which usually heads the dedicatory inscription. The plaque is also called a "takhshit," namely an ornament, which adorns the Torah, a term often inscribed on the plaques.
The custom of donating silver plaques as sacred objects is unique to these communities. Some inscriptions do reveal that occasionally they were donated with other ritual objects, such as a Torah scroll, a parokhet, or a mappah.

This silver dedicatory plaque is part of a group of unique sacred objects known as shadai'ot (shadai'a in singular). The custom of donating these plaques is common among the Greek Romaniot communities. The name shadai'a is derived from God’s name, "?? ???" (El Shadai = God Almighty) - which usually heads the dedicatory inscription. The plaque is also called a "takhshit," namely an ornament, which adorns the Torah, a term often inscribed on the plaques.
The custom of donating silver plaques as sacred objects is unique to these communities. Some inscriptions do reveal that occasionally they were donated with other ritual objects, such as a Torah scroll, a parokhet, or a mappah.
