Are you in the process of buying a new Torah Cover for your Sefer Torah and having trouble getting the proper measurements?  Well, no worries!  Here's an easy guide on how to measure a Torah mantle to get that perfect fit!



1.  Measuring from Existing Torah Cover: 

A. Measure from the top to the bottom of the Torah cover, or the length you prefer (excluding fringes, if any). 

B. Measure the width (left to right) and depth (front to back) of Torah mantle board, as well as the distance between the holes.

2.  Measuring from Torah Rollers (Atzei Chaim):

A. Measure from the top higher plate (disc) to the bottom of the lower plate of the atzei chaim, or Torah rollers.

B. Measure the width (left to right) and depth (front to back) of the top plates closed together.

3.  Measuring from Torah Scroll (Parchment):

Measure the height and depth of the Torah parchment (klaf).

Now that you already have the correct measurements, go ahead and select your favorite Torah cover design!  It's that easy.
