  Torah pointer, Israel/Eretz Israel, 19??

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Unknown,

The silver Torah pointer consists of a hanger, a bar and a pointer.

The bar is divided into three by two slots. It is decorated with a pattern of criss cross lines. A loop is inserted through a ring at the end of the upper arm. The pointer is shaped like an open, flat hand. One face bears an inscription which reads from the fingers towards the bar:

!וידבר ה' אל ## משה לאמר ## דבר אל אהרון ## ואל בניו## כה תברכו את בני ישראל ## אמר להם יברכך ה' ## וישמרך יאר ה' פניו ## אליך ויחנך ישא ה' ## עניו אליך וישם לך שלום וא שעביו וא !

!And the Lord spake unto ## Moses saying ## speak unto Aaron ## and unto his sons, saying ## On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel## saying unto them the Lord bless thee ##and keep thee,the Lord make his face shine ## upon thee, and be gracious unto thee,## the Lord lift up his countenance upon thee ## and give thee peace.And they shall ## put my name upon the children of Israel and I will bless them (Num.6:22-27)!
