This is my grandfather's torah cover

My Grandfather was a big collector of Judaica and he passed that down to my father. My father has begun to bring a lot of Judaica into our house. This specific piece of Judaica is a cover for a torah that was used in Germany by my grandfather's first synagogue. My grandfather grew up in Germany and when he came to the U.S. his synagogue gave him that torah cover as a going away gift. My dad now cherishes this cover and has now passed it down to me for my Bar Mitzvah gift and I hope to pass it down to my children.
