Silver-plated Torah pointer with metal chain and gemstones.
In order to both prevent damage to the parchment or lettering and in order to show the Torah extraordinary honor and respect, the Torah parchment itself is not actually touched with the hands, and the reader does not follow along with a finger while reading. Instead, he uses a special Torah Pointer (or “yad”--which in Hebrew means hand) to keep place while he reads.
Size: 23 cm/ 9 in
