The Bimah or Torah reading table is also used by Sephardic jews as a prayer podium.
The main difference between an Ashkenazic and a Sephardic bima for a shul is that an Ashkenazic bimah has a Incline fit for a Ashkenazic sefer torah for easier reading. In contrast, Sephardic jews use a Torah case that holds the sefer Torah upright which needs to be placed on a flat surface.
There are 2 main types of bimah placement. The standard, classical bimah stands on the floor of the shul. The more luxurious one comes on a stage having seating places for the Gabay and for the other members that read the Torah.
At Matanyah, we design and import luxury Tayvot hand carved from Mahogany wood, designed with rich and antique style.
