Torah Breastplate

The breastplate or Cḥoshen mishpat is a metal shield placed in front of the mantle of the Torah scroll in Ashkenazi communities

Pure silver or silver plated

In recent years it has became more popular to use silver plated breastplates. We have a wide selection of silver plated Torah pointers, Torah finias and Torah crowns having an identical look to our pure silver ones. The base of the silver plated ones is copper, having an identical weight to silver, giving the silver plated ones a similar weight to the one made out of pure silverThe main advantage of choosing silver plated breastplate is the cheap price. Similarly, the main disadvantage is that in case of a scratch the coating would peel. Consequently, the scratch does not show as much so the consideration is mostly financial. 

Various sizes of Torah Breastplate

Breastplates come in various sizes. For a standard 22" - 23.5" Sefer Torah you would get a 10" breastplate. In contrast, for a smaller 14" -19" Sefer Torah you would get a 6" breastplate. The silver plates ones come all in standard size. In contrast, the ones made out of pure silver are smaller due to the high price of silver. 

Manufacture of Breastplate for sefer torah

There are breastplates that we make at a factory. In contrast, an artist makes other ones by hand at his shop. The hand made ones are more beautiful and unique. The ones that we make in a factory are in stock so we may deliver them immediately or in a matter of days. The ones which are hand made are custom made to personally fit you so the manufacture time is 1 month from the time the order was received.
