About The Word From Zion
The Word From Zion by Signature Plus Ltd. was conceived by a deep love for the land and people of Israel. It is our privilege to introduce to you authentic, antique, hand-scribed Torah scrolls and portions for both individual use and unique artwork also antique oil lamps plus Biblical Jewelery.
The segments of scripture offered are authentic, hand-scribed portions of a Torah Scroll (the first five books of Moses) from Israel. Their ages are estimated between 70 and 200 years old.
The Jewish people consider the Torah to be the living "G-d breathed", holy Word of G-d to be handled with the greatest care.
When Torah is read in synagogue, the scripture is never touched by human hands. Instead the words are pointed out using a hand-shaped pointer called "Yahd" (in Hebrew).
