The dressing of the Holy Torah scroll represents the honor and reverence to God and His Commandments. The Torah mantle is an ornate covering that both protects and beautifies the Sefer Torah, typically made of velvet and embroidered with metallic thread, silk, and ornamental beads. The Torah mantles are opened at the bottom and pierced with two openings on the top so that the atzei chaim, (Torah staves), can protrude. The Torah mantles are richly ornamented with artistic art, depicting motifs of ritual references such as Lions and 10 Commandments, Eitz Chaim (Tree of Life), Shema Yisrael or an image of Jerusalem. Skillfully hand crafted, the Torah mantles also feature verses from the Torah hand made or machine embroidered. The Torah mantles may come in many colors - red, blue, green or gold to match the Paroches (Ark Curtains), Bima & Amud covers. During the High Holidays, the Torah mantles and all Torah coverings are changed to immaculate white to symbolize the purity and holiness of the Days of Awe.
It is customary to donate the Torah mantle in honor of a deceased or loved one by including the name of the person embroidered on the front or back of the Torah mantle.
