Torah Guards are a specially designed wooden attachment, that guides and keeps the scroll even between the rollers. Torah Guards can be installed in a matter of minutes and provide the needed support to the parchment scroll when the Torah is in an upright position. Torah Guards prevent wear and tear on your precious Torah by protecting the parchment which often slips down. This slipping of the parchment causes the bottom edges to rub, fold over and even sometimes rip. Using Torah Guards will enhance the longevity of the Torah and prevent undue repair costs.All orders of new Torah Poles come with Torah Guards. Each can be purchased separately for $35.
