Bar Mitzvah 6: The Torah  18" x 24"
As the primary holy scripture of Judaism. the Torah is revered and treated with the utmost respect. Traditional Torahs are handwritten on scrolls and protected in silver and gold Torah cases. Hinged doors on the cylindrical cases open to reveal the text and here, father and son are gazing upon the scrolls. I noticed that onlookers were constantly reaching out to touch the Torah as it was being paraded past.
