The prismatic Torah case consists of a body and a coronet.
The case opens in the centre on the front facet, forming two halves joined in the back by a steady facet.
The body comprises twelve facets and is encircled, at its upper and lower edges, by two wooden stepped strips, creating two friezes.
A dedication silver plaque is attached to the front left side. It is written in Hebrew square linear letters, and reads:
"רחל סיס/ בת רבי/ יעקב כטורזה."
"Rachel Sis, the daughter of R. Jacob Katorza" (see: History).
Each facet is of plain wood.
The coronet is composed of twelve units, which continue the body's facets (figs. 1, 2). Each unit is made of a plain fleur-de-lis.
The inner face of the Torah case is of plain wood (fig. 1). Each half has a double shelf at its bottom and top. The bottom is blocked by a board with a rectangular hole for elevating the Torah and several round holes; the top is similarly blocked, but without the holes.
Two holes for inserting the Torah staves appear at the bottom and top.
