  Torah mantle, Fes, 1967

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev,

The green velvet Torah mantle is composed of a cloak and a top.

The cylindrical cloth cloak is attached to the top and opens in the front. Both sides of the opening are decorated with a tree bearing flowers.

On the back of the cloack are the Tablets of the Covenant inscribed with the ten commandments. The arches are topped by a Torah crown. An inscription appears above the Tablets of the Covenant. The lower border of the mantle is decorated with a wied geometric patterned band. The oval top is covered by an embroidered velvet and has two openings at its centre for the Torah Scroll rod. The borders of the mantle are encircled by ribbon of fringes.

The dedicatory inscription is embroidered in filled letters, and reads:

מעיל הקדיש למנו' [למנוחת] הב' [הבחור] / ונ' יעקב אזוגי זל' בן / אברהם היו'נתבדמי / יג' ניסן ש' התשכז' כ[?ב?]כו'ש'

"The Torah mantle is a donation for the repose of (int.) the youth (int.) and the distinguished Jacob Azugi may he rest in peace (int.), son of Abraham, may the Lord sustain him and grant him favour (int.) passed away 13 of Kislev 5727=(1967) ?"
