Torah covers may be necessary to protect the Torah scrolls, but they also serve as a major decorative element of a sanctuary’s interior. When the Ark is opened, the Torahs should glow, both spiritually and visually. You will hear an intake of breath from your congregation as they are moved by the beauty of the covers.

All of our Torah covers are made to order, so that the size and design will be a perfect fit. All are made with wooden yokes, beautiful linings, and openings in the back for easy access. Hand-turned wooden rings for the top of the mantle are also available. A variety of Torah binder styles are available, as well as silk screening or embroidery of dedications. We also create bima and lectern covers, bein gavrahs, and Shabbat tablecloths.

Whether we are making one mantle for a family, or a set of 14 for a Synagogue, our attention to detail is paramount.

Appliquéd and Embroidered Torah Covers


"Creation" shows the seven days of creation in a modern and graphic way. Each mantle depicts the pivotal element of G-d's work of that day, and each has a hidden Hebrew word as part of the design. Two sets were made; one set for everyday use, and one set for the High Holidays. Rich, elegant and formal metallic neutrals were chosen for the appliqued designs on the High Holiday covers, and vibrant jewel toned colored cottons were chosen the for the fabrics of the everyday mantles. Many of the colorful fabrics are hand dyed or hand painted, giving an additional level of interest and depth to the colors chosen.

Rejoice Papercut 1

Hand Woven Torah Covers

Sea and Sky

Cotton warp and weft, hand woven body, borders of upholstery fabric with hand-dyed bands.

This torah cover was inspired by a question: “Why do tallitot have stripes?” The answer is in the phrase: “Blue is like sea, sea is like sky, sky is like the Throne of the Lord” (Sotah 17b), which is embroidered on the top and the bottom borders of this mantle.
The Jews of Croatia

Various cotton and novelty yarn used in both the warp and weft of the hand woven appliquéd elements; velvet background fabric.

This Holocaust Memorial mantle is dedicated to the Jews of Croatia, whose communities date back to the 3rd century. The people of these communities distinguished themselves in trade and medicine. During WWII, 20,000 Jews died in Yugoslavian camps. Today, there are still a few hundred Jews living in the former Yugoslavia.
P'ri Hagafen (Fruit of the Vine)

Beautiful shades of red, purple, and gold create a luscious impression of grapes at the height of ripeness.
