The public will have an opportunity to view the world’s smallest Torah which will be on display, beginning June 13, through the month of July at the Moriah Gallery in Manhattan. The miniature, dating from the 19th century, was acquired recently by Peter Ehrenthal, owner of the gallery, who describes it as “the eighth wonder of the world.”
The Torah is 4-1/2 inches high and is housed in a 9-3/4 inch high silver filigreed ark. The Moriah Gallery, at 699 Madison Avenue, between 62nd and 63rd Streets, will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
