© Gross Family Collection, Photographer: Unknown,

This text was prepared by William Gross:

The book is a miniature edition of the Chumah printed by Sinai in Tel Aviv in the 50's. The book is not terribly rare, but it has been bound within a marvelous silver binding in a neo Art Deco style, probably by one of the German designers and silversmiths who emigrated to Israel in the 30's. The silver binding is item 025.001.     in the Gross Family Collection.
