Hebrew Illuminated Manuscripts
  Poem dedicated to a couple who donated Torah scroll to a synagogue, Germany, 1912/13

© Gross Family Collection, Photographer: Unknown, -

The following description was prepared by William Gross:

Quite an extraordinary dedicatory poem of praise in honor of a couple who have dedicated a Sefer Torah and all its accouterments to a synagogue. The poem is written in an acrostic form through which the first letters of each line are for the name of the donating couple and a list of the things they have dedicated to the synagogue. The sheet is both written and decorated in fine taste. The scribe is Naftali Laks, from whose hand is another illuminated sheet in the Gross Family Collection, 130.012.002. On that sheet is the name of a street in German, so the location is most likely Germany for this sheet as well.

Dedicated To:               Avraham Weintraub

Dedicated To:               Vitel Weintraub

Author and Scribe:        Naftali ben Yitzhak Laks
