Etz Chaim for the Torah scrolls includes the sticks and the knobs that are attached to the sticks that hold the scrolls of the
Torah. The knobs are round in order to enable a comfortable scrolling of the Torah from side to side and also in order to hold
the parchment scrolls straight and open. The knobs of the Torah scrolls are well decorated. The simple decoration is from the
tree itself. Usually thr carver creates different shapes of circles in different sizes on the knobs and plate of the Etz Chaim.
More glorious Etz Chaim will contain silver ornaments like: crown, silver necklaces, and silver interlaced flowers all around the
plate.Most ornaments will appear on the upper side of the Etz Chaim because that is the side that catches our eyes. Some
clients would prefer to have ornaments also on the lower part of the plate, it is possible with extra cost of 50% ( The prices on
the website are for ornaments on one side only).
Dedication on the Etz Chaim: We add the dedication on the upper plate of the Etz Chaim and it is usually done by carving on
a silver plate or on aluminum plate (silver is double priced).
The sizes of the Etz Chaim are 56 cm (most popular), 48 cm or 36 cm. We need to know the size of your parchment in order
to determin the size of your Etz Chaim (2-3 cm larger)
