What’s an aliyah place holder? When you’ve had the honor of being called upon to read from the Torah, the Rabbi, Cantor or spiritual leader uses this art to hold the place of the next reading. There is a layer of clinging rubber that helps hold the piece in place on the slanted table, or “bimah”, that the Torah lies on. It makes an amazing gift for anyone who chants Torah or teaches Torah, such as Rabbis or cantors. It can also be meaningful gift to be given just before a Bar or Bat-Mitzvah. The simple Dove design symbolizes peace.
