Forgotten Judaica

The Yad, or Torah Pointer, literally means hand. The Yad links a thirteen-year-old's Bar or Bat Mitzvah to thousands of years of tradition. Whether held by a young reader or a seasoned adult lainer, the Yad is used to guide the reader from word to word as he or she chants from the Torah in synagogue, abiding by the law that human flesh not come in contact with the Torah parchment scroll.

When our daughter Sophia was called to read from the Torah, to become a Bat Mitzvah, it was very important to us that she have her own Torah Pointer. The Yad stays with each child into adulthood and becomes a treasured keepsake, a wonderful remembrance of his or her personal connection to the Torah.
