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

The maniform bar is composed of an upper arm and a forearm. The upper arm is composed of two rectangular parts. The upper part has a spiral shape. The lower part is decorated with two lozenges framed by three pairs of horizontal grooves between them. The flat forearm has an elongated leaf shape with curved edges. It tapers toward the pointer.   An inscription in square letters appears on the forearm. It is arranged in one line which reads:

הקדש לעילוי נרן רפאל הלוי בן קאדום נע נם כה כסליו

Translation: Dedicated for the exaltation of the soul of [?] Raphael Halevi , son of Kadum (?), may he rest in Eden, passed away in Kislev 25th”

 A pointer in the shape of a clenched hand with a crooked index finger is attached to a cuff at the end of the forearm.

 A hanger is attached to the upper arm. It is composed of a loop inserted through a ring in which the upper arm terminates.
