The Holiest Package: Wrapping, Rolling, Encasing, and Enrobing the Torah

Seudah Shlishit Shiur in Memory of Stewart Bolton, z”l

Saturday, April 23, 6:45 pm, led by Rabbi Bolton

First we had to find right box for the tablets of the law as well as the broken pieces. Then the Talmud explains that Moses produced the first scroll of the Torah while in the wilderness. Are there notes about rolling or wrapping it?

Ashkenazi and Sephardic housing for our sacred scrolls developed differently and not every ark we open is built the same way. Looking through the lens of packaging engineering, material history and design theory, we will explore how the Jewish People have contained, encased, and enrobed our holiest possession.

Rabbi Bolton’s shiur is dedicated to the memory of his father, Stewart L. Bolton, z”l, former pharmaceutical and food packaging specialist.
