Collecting antique Judaica  Antique Trader

Each Torah, which forms the basis for Jewish law and ethics, contains 304,805 Hebrew letters painstakingly hand-scribed on parchmefeaturedImagent scrolls. Each is a faithful copy of the original, received on Mt. Sinai.

Many observant Jews, to mark the occasion, devote themselves to nightlong Torah study. Before scrolling Torahs open, however, many customarily express their joy in following the law by adorning them with handcrafted silver or gold adornments — breastplates, crowns, ritual pointers and finials. Although these items are all religious in nature, they are also invaluable works of art. A Torah scroll embellished with all of them is, indeed, a sight to behold.
