  Torah case wrapper, Tripoli

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 1986
The rectangular Torah case wrapper is framed by a wide silver band and divided into three sections. The composition is symmetrical. In the center is a narrow rectangle with two square sections at either side. In the center remain traces of a gate, within which is a hamsa surmounted by the name: !עודה! !Uda! Two petals adorn the upper corners of the middle section. Between them appears the name: !יהודה! !Yehuda! Two horizontal strips divide the middle section from the two side sections. In the outer corners of the side sections are two foliate motifs which meet in the center. Ten loops are sewn to the wrapper`s upper border. A fringe band is attached to the lower border.
