For hundreds of years, Jews used simple tapered wooden sticks to point the way through the text of the Torah without touching the fragile handwritten animal-skin parchment surface of the holy book. These pointers are called “yads” (literally the Hebrew word for "hand", יד) because of the miniature hands that are typically featured on the tip of the pointer. Yads are personal, individualized objects and have developed into a unique art form with great variety since there are no rules governing their form.

This stunning ornate silver-plated pewter yad is used to read the Torah. Laurel leaves decorate the shaft, which is hand-painted a beautiful teal color. A band of authentic crystals circle the top. A beautiful yad is a wonderful gift for a bar/bat mitzvah, synagogue, or an observant Jewish family.
