Torah pointer (Yad)
The Torah Yad, or pointer is usually suspended on a chain from the Torah staves, or atzei chaim. Yad is the Hebrew word for ‘hand’. The pointer is usually in the shape of a hand with a pointing index finger. The yad is used to follow the text during the Torah reading, as to ensure that the parchment is not touched.
The Torah pointers are typically made from silver, brass or other plated metals.
