The Torah pointer is flat and consists of a bar and pointer. The straight bar bears an inscription on the upper and reverse sides. Engraved in outline letters, the inscription on the upper side reads: זה הקולמוס שהקדיש יוסף באבאגאן בן בנימין ##גול לכבוד תורתנו הקדושה זיעא )זכותו יגן עלינו אמן( "This is the Torah pointer which was dedicated by Joseph Babagan son of Benjamin Gol in honor of our holy Torah, may his virtue protect us, amen." The inscription on the reverse side reads: תורה צוה לנו משה מורשה קי')קהילת יעקב( )דברים לג ד( ח' סיון שנת תשך, "Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob (Deut. 33:4) 8th Sivan the year [5]720 (1960)." The bar is divided by an undulating middle joint, the upper side of which is decorated with a Star^of^David. Its reverse side is decorated with a bird flanked by stags, with a fish in each of the four corners. The bar is surmounted by an elongated upper joint, the reverse side of which is decorated with a fish. The pointer is flower-shaped and is also decorated with a flower. The entire Torah pointer is framed by a band with a recurring pattern of diagonal lines.
