Yad and Sefer Torah

Yad (a pointer used when reading the Sefer Torah) and a Sefer Torah (Torah Scroll written by hand on parchment)


The Torah (the Books of Moses) (תורה) is made up of five books that were given to Moshe Rabbenu (Moses our Teacher) directly from G-d shortly after the Exodus from Mitzraim around 1230BCE. The Written and Oral Torahs (Mishnah) was handed down through the successive generations from the time of Moses.
