The Talmud (Berachoth 62a)
tells us that the Tora was given
with the right hand. This is de-
rived &owl the biblical description
of the event which states "At His
right Wind was a- fiery law unto
them" f Deuteronomy 33:2). The
reader ,of the Tora in relationship
to the one who is called to the
Tora is :compared to the Almighty
who gave the Tora to the people
of Israel. Therefore the one who
is summoned stands at his right
hand—symbolic of the right hand
of the 'Almighty from which we
received the Tora. It is for this
reason that the Sefer Tora is taken
with the right hand and carried
with the right hand. Some use this
consideration as the basis for in-
sisting that any holy book should
be given and received with the
right hand. The right hand, fur-
thermore, symbolized- strength and
also the positive aspect of life. The
Tora is to be considered and ob-
served with a strong positive out-
look on life and the principles of
the Tora and not with a negative
or defeatist attitude.

anxiety to come close to the Tora.
Using the longer way back to his
seat in the synagogue demon-
strates his reluctance to leave the
Tora. There are some authorities,
however, who insist that one who
is called to the Tora make his ap-
proach to the Tora from the right
because all who entered the holy
temple were commanded to enter
from the right as did those who
approached the altar of sacrifice in
the temple of old make their ap-
proach from the right (Talmud
Babli, Zebahim 63a) and left from
the left. Again the right, as we
said before, represented the stron-
ger, positive side while the left
symbolized the negative and weaker
side. In this way, of course, one
demonstrated the strength and
eagerness with which he approach-
ed the Tora and the reluctance and
weakness with which he left it.
