This chapter includes a section of plates in which ceremonial objects are illustrated and documented according to the communities in which they were used. It highlights the plates of textile that typically represent the ceremonial artistic concept of each community. It also describes the wrap from Rome that consists of fourteen pieces of undyed linen of various widths with linen strips that are embroidered with a pattern of vines. The chapter looks at a wrap from Rome that was stored in Museo Ebraico di Roma, which is made of seven pieces of rectangular fabric arranged symmetrically on each side of the central panel, which depicts the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. The chapter analyses the embroidery of two pieces of fabric to the right and left of the central panel of the wrap with the name of the donor, Joseph Samuel Sarina.
