The Torah shield is rectangular and terminates in an arch. A plaque with the Tables of the Covenant is situated in the center of the shield. The Tables are inscribed with the first words of the Ten commandments in square outlined letters. Two rampant lions holding the Tables of the Covenant flank the plaque. They are turning backwards and extend their tongues. A crowned, spread-winged, double-headed eagle is situated below the plaque. The eagle's body consists of a shield inscribed with square outlined letters which read:
"כתר / מלכות" Crown of kingship"
A symmetrical pillar with twisted lines and an ornamental base and capital is situated on each side of the shield. Below the pillars, on each side of the eagle, is a pattern of foliate scrolls. The Torah shield is surrounded by a raised line and serrated edges made of trefoil. There are two bird-shaped loops on the shield to which attached a chain to hang it on the Torah mantle.
