What is a “Yad” or “Torah Pointer?” For those who are not familiar with this product, The Torah is a handwritten scroll of the first five books of the Hebrew Bible, or the Five Books of Moses. The word “Torah” is Hebrew for "teaching," "instruction," or "law." Throughout history, people also have used the word Torah in a wider sense, to refer to the entire spectrum of authoritative Jewish religious teachings. Torah Pointers (or “Yads”) are plain or decorative tools with a carved hand at one end showing the index finger extended. The opposite end usually has an ornate object, a chain, or a colorful cord that can be used as a decoration – or to attach the Torah Pointer to the scroll. Torah Pointers help the reader keep his or her place on the scroll.
