We finished our רימונים (rimonim – the decorative coverings on the Torah scroll handles).

We made ידיים (yadayim – hands/pointers to read the Torah).

We found some shiny jewels to add to our כתר (keter – crown).  It had sparkles and “diamonds,” making it look, in the words of our Shorashim friends, fit for a king and/or princess, which made it perfect for the Torah!

We built a בימה (bima – elevated platform in front of ark) .  We talked about the בימה (bima – elevated platform in front of ark) not being any kind of stage, but a special place for people to read from the Torah that allows for other people to see and hear them better.

We got a chance to take out the Torah in Beit Shorashim and talked about the אותיות (otiyot – letters) being fancier.  We even found the אותיות (otiyot – letters) in our שמות (shemot – names)!

We got to take a look at the Torah in the sanctuary and used the יד (yad – hand/pointer) that our Shorashim friends made to read!
