20 Description

The faceted Torah case consists of a body and a coronet.

The Torah case is divided into two vertical halves at the centre of its front facet, while the back facet is separate and attached to each half by hinges.

The case is composed of twelve facets and is encircled by two pairs of strips at its upper and lower edges, creating two friezes.

Knobs for hanging the Torah wrapper are set between the upper strips.

A gate-shaped dedicatory plaque appears at the front facet, opening at its centre into two vertical parts. The plaque bears a dedicatory inscription written in square linear letters, it reads:

"המשתדלת/ מסעודה לבית צגרון/ ת"ם (נתרם) למנוחת בעלה מעתוק/ צגרון נ"ע (נוחו עדן)/ אשר נפטר/ לב"ע (לבית עולמו)/ ביום כ"ב טבת/ שנת התרצ"ג"

“Through the good offices of/ Mas’udah of the Sagrun family/ donated for the repose of her husband Ma’atuk/ Sagrun may he rest in Eden/ who passed away/ on the 22nd of Tevet (5)693 = [January 20th 1933]”

An additional dedicatory inscription appears between the two upper strips:

"זה הספר למנוחת מעתוק סגרון נ"ע (נוחו עדן)"

“This Torah scroll is for the repose of Ma’atuk Sagrun may he rest inEden”

The openwork coronet is composed of twelve units which continue the body’s facets. Each unit depicts a fleur-de-lys at its centre framed by two pairs of round scrolls. An additional fleur-de-lys tops each facet while a bud surmounts the connections between the facets.

The inner face of the Torah case is plain wood. Each half bears double shelves at bottom and top. The upper space is blocked with a wooden piece bearing five round holes while the lower space is blocked by a bar with four round holes and a rectangular hole for inserting the hands while raising the Torah.

Holes for the inserting the Torah scroll staves appear at the top and bottom.

20 Description

The faceted Torah case consists of a body and a coronet.

The Torah case is divided into two vertical halves at the centre of its front facet, while the back facet is separate and attached to each half by hinges.

The case is composed of twelve facets and is encircled by two pairs of strips at its upper and lower edges, creating two friezes.

Knobs for hanging the Torah wrapper are set between the upper strips.

A gate-shaped dedicatory plaque appears at the front facet, opening at its centre into two vertical parts. The plaque bears a dedicatory inscription written in square linear letters, it reads:

"המשתדלת/ מסעודה לבית צגרון/ ת"ם (נתרם) למנוחת בעלה מעתוק/ צגרון נ"ע (נוחו עדן)/ אשר נפטר/ לב"ע (לבית עולמו)/ ביום כ"ב טבת/ שנת התרצ"ג"

“Through the good offices of/ Mas’udah of the Sagrun family/ donated for the repose of her husband Ma’atuk/ Sagrun may he rest in Eden/ who passed away/ on the 22nd of Tevet (5)693 = [January 20th 1933]”

An additional dedicatory inscription appears between the two upper strips:

"זה הספר למנוחת מעתוק סגרון נ"ע (נוחו עדן)"

“This Torah scroll is for the repose of Ma’atuk Sagrun may he rest inEden”

The openwork coronet is composed of twelve units which continue the body’s facets. Each unit depicts a fleur-de-lys at its centre framed by two pairs of round scrolls. An additional fleur-de-lys tops each facet while a bud surmounts the connections between the facets.

The inner face of the Torah case is plain wood. Each half bears double shelves at bottom and top. The upper space is blocked with a wooden piece bearing five round holes while the lower space is blocked by a bar with four round holes and a rectangular hole for inserting the hands while raising the Torah.

Holes for the inserting the Torah scroll staves appear at the top and bottom.

20 Description

The faceted Torah case consists of a body and a coronet.

The Torah case is divided into two vertical halves at the centre of its front facet, while the back facet is separate and attached to each half by hinges.

The case is composed of twelve facets and is encircled by two pairs of strips at its upper and lower edges, creating two friezes.

Knobs for hanging the Torah wrapper are set between the upper strips.

A gate-shaped dedicatory plaque appears at the front facet, opening at its centre into two vertical parts. The plaque bears a dedicatory inscription written in square linear letters, it reads:

"המשתדלת/ מסעודה לבית צגרון/ ת"ם (נתרם) למנוחת בעלה מעתוק/ צגרון נ"ע (נוחו עדן)/ אשר נפטר/ לב"ע (לבית עולמו)/ ביום כ"ב טבת/ שנת התרצ"ג"

“Through the good offices of/ Mas’udah of the Sagrun family/ donated for the repose of her husband Ma’atuk/ Sagrun may he rest in Eden/ who passed away/ on the 22nd of Tevet (5)693 = [January 20th 1933]”

An additional dedicatory inscription appears between the two upper strips:

"זה הספר למנוחת מעתוק סגרון נ"ע (נוחו עדן)"

“This Torah scroll is for the repose of Ma’atuk Sagrun may he rest inEden”

The openwork coronet is composed of twelve units which continue the body’s facets. Each unit depicts a fleur-de-lys at its centre framed by two pairs of round scrolls. An additional fleur-de-lys tops each facet while a bud surmounts the connections between the facets.

The inner face of the Torah case is plain wood. Each half bears double shelves at bottom and top. The upper space is blocked with a wooden piece bearing five round holes while the lower space is blocked by a bar with four round holes and a rectangular hole for inserting the hands while raising the Torah.

Holes for the inserting the Torah scroll staves appear at the top and bottom.

20 Description

The faceted Torah case consists of a body and a coronet.

The Torah case is divided into two vertical halves at the centre of its front facet, while the back facet is separate and attached to each half by hinges.

The case is composed of twelve facets and is encircled by two pairs of strips at its upper and lower edges, creating two friezes.

Knobs for hanging the Torah wrapper are set between the upper strips.

A gate-shaped dedicatory plaque appears at the front facet, opening at its centre into two vertical parts. The plaque bears a dedicatory inscription written in square linear letters, it reads:

"המשתדלת/ מסעודה לבית צגרון/ ת"ם (נתרם) למנוחת בעלה מעתוק/ צגרון נ"ע (נוחו עדן)/ אשר נפטר/ לב"ע (לבית עולמו)/ ביום כ"ב טבת/ שנת התרצ"ג"

“Through the good offices of/ Mas’udah of the Sagrun family/ donated for the repose of her husband Ma’atuk/ Sagrun may he rest in Eden/ who passed away/ on the 22nd of Tevet (5)693 = [January 20th 1933]”

An additional dedicatory inscription appears between the two upper strips:

"זה הספר למנוחת מעתוק סגרון נ"ע (נוחו עדן)"

“This Torah scroll is for the repose of Ma’atuk Sagrun may he rest inEden”

The openwork coronet is composed of twelve units which continue the body’s facets. Each unit depicts a fleur-de-lys at its centre framed by two pairs of round scrolls. An additional fleur-de-lys tops each facet while a bud surmounts the connections between the facets.

The inner face of the Torah case is plain wood. Each half bears double shelves at bottom and top. The upper space is blocked with a wooden piece bearing five round holes while the lower space is blocked by a bar with four round holes and a rectangular hole for inserting the hands while raising the Torah.

Holes for the inserting the Torah scroll staves appear at the top and bottom.
