Sacred and Ritual Objects Torah case wrapper
The rectangular Torah case wrapper is divided vertically into three rectangles. The central panel is inscribed with a dedication, topping and surmounting a leafy crown, from which two leaves emerge.
The inscription, embroidered in square Hebrew letters, reads:
"למנוחת/ הר(ב) מכילף/ חדוק/ נע (נוחו עדן)."
"(Dedicated) for the repose of the Rabbi Makhluf Hadouk, may he rest in Eden."
Two geometrical cypresses are depicted on either side. Each is framed by a foliate pattern set at the four corners.
The panels and entire wrapper are framed with strips enclosing a pattern including open hands (hamsa), crescents (hilal), stars and flowers.
Ten hooks for hanging the wrapper on the Torah case are attached to its upper edge, while a strip of fringes is attached to its bottom.
