The silver maniform Torah Pointer consists of a bar and a pointer.

The bar is divided into an upper arm and a forearm by an upper and middle joint. The bar is flat, rectangular and bears a dedicatory inscription framed by double outlines filled with dots and slanted lines. The upper arm is surmounted by an upper joint in the shape of a stylised pointed leaf, decorated with a seven branched Menorah on one side and a palm tree on the other side. The flat flower shaped middle joint is decorated with birds,fish and a central flower. A clenched hand with a straight index finger is attached to an undulating cuff.

The inscription on the upper side of the bar is engraved in outline letters and reads towards the pointer: אצבע זה קודש לבית % הכנסת לעלוי נשמת המרוחם !This Ezba (Torah pointer) is dedicated to the synagogue % for the exaltation of the soul of the one who found mercy!

Lower side reads towards upper arm: יעקב בן מו )מולא( יוסף חסיד שנפתר % ביום הש )יום חמישי בשבוע( יד לחודש תשרי תשל ת'נ'צ'ב'ה' !Jacob son of Mullah (int.) Joseph Haim Hasid, who passed away % on Thursday 14th in Tishrei, (5)730=(1970), may his soul be bound up in the bond of life (int.)!
