Torah Scroll Bible from the Book of Genesis.

Genesis 37 - Joseph's Dreams.

The parchment has a beautiful, aged colour and the letters are easy to read. The scroll has a beautiful deep red colour, similar to very old scrolls that come from Yemen. This deep colour is a result of the process used in making the scroll, this process ages to a deeper colour over the centuries. The present fragment offered is an early witness to the various Hebrew Yemeni customs concerning its letters, and as a whole, the writing of a Torah. Torah fragments like these are extremely rare and seldom seen in synagogues or available due to their age. The Torah Scroll is well preserved considering its age and in good condition and will remain in a beautiful condition for centuries to come.

This portion is a one of a kind with a style that was used in Yemen more than 300 yrs ago. It has typical Hebrew letters and style. Even with its history and considering its age, it is well preserved and in authentic antique condition and will remain so with proper treatment for centuries to come.

Heavy and thick vellum - Wild deer vellum with a deep red colour.

It originates from a synagogue of Yemeni Jews.
