With the silhouette of the Torah as a backdrop, a Torah pointer is overlaid onto
a turkey feather quill to highlight the role a hand plays in the reading and writing of a Torah.
The yad, in this context, is defined as a pointer with a small hand and finger
extended at the end to aid the reader (Baal Koreh).
The quill is the instrument used by the Torah scribe (Sofer)
The color palette for this design is purposefully subtle in shades of gray
to magnify the silver of the pointer and the gold of the symbolic text of the scroll.
