Book Stands & Shtenders

Judaism is known for having numerous esoteric items that are used in various rituals. One of these items that is actually quite useful and is not limited to a religious ceremony is the book stand, also known in Yiddish as a “Shtender”.

Bookstands and Shtenders take a few different forms, including a simple book rest that is placed on a desk and a full-size lectern that may be covered with a heavily decorated felt cover. Looking for a Bar Mitzvah or Hanukkah gift? Consider a gift an olive wood bookstand that is painted with scenes of Jerusalem and the name of the young man entering adulthood. If you would like to give a more ornate stand, consider a stand made from Mahogany, Pine or Oak that is overlaid with strips of 925 sterling silver and engraved with names or verses relating to the study of Torah.
