An 18th-Century Torah Scroll and Its Ornaments

February 26, 2002-June 30, 2002
Location: Judaica and Jewish Ethnography Wing
Curator: Iris Fishof
Media: Torah Scroll
A gift from David J. Azrieli in honor of Teddy Kollek’s ninetieth birthday, this small (23 cm-high) Torah scroll is accompanied by elaborate finials, a shield, and a pointer made by the silversmith Johann Friedrich Ehe in Nuremberg. Together with a matching ark inlaid with silver plaques and engraved with biblical texts, the scroll and its ornaments are displayed alongside Torah sets from other Jewish communities around the world.
