© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 1986

The rectangular silver book binding consists of an upper cover, a lower cover, a spine, and two clasps. The upper cover bears a rectangular plaque made of ivory, attached to the book by a folded brass strip. Two ivory bands with an openwork foliate pattern against a brass background are attached to the upper and lower parts of the cover. A central plaque bears the Tables of the Convenant in brass, inscribed with the numeral equivalent (in Roman numbers) of the Decalogue, inside an ivory frame. It's composed by a shell pattern dome and two laurel branches interlaced at the bottom. The lower cover is made of purple velvet. The binding is closed by two clasps with a geometrical pattern.
