In Israel, the word Oriental doesn't mean Asian; instead it refers to the rich cultural and artistic influences of the Middle East. These are precisely the influences that Yair Emanuel has incorporated into this extraordinary hand-painted Torah Pointer (Yad). Oriental artwork has an almost regal feel--with detailed scrolling and swirling designs--often depicting peacocks, birds, and other wildlife. This gorgeous and richly-colored Yad and its matching base are no exception. Accenting the hand-painted and lacquered wood of the arm of this Torah Pointer are accents of brass: the chain and the pointer itself (in the shape of a hand with an outstretched finger). The matching base of the Yad allows you to display it proudly when you are not using it to read Torah.
A Torah Pointer makes an extraordinary gift for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah to commemorate the first time a young person reads from the Torah in the community.
