I'm going out on a limb here. Mods, please move this topic elsewhere if not appropriate for this section.

Does anyone know of any site that sells religous, or specifically jewish paraphernalia? I'm specifically looking to browse yads, the reading sticks for reading the Torah scrolls. Using a reading stick can increase your reading speed by something like 50%-100%, and if you're going to have a stick for reading, you may as well have a nice one.

Ah do what I just did, search for Jewish Paraphernalia. This brings up a multitude of sites.

hah, thanks. Didn't think to google that particular phrase, to be honest. I've been googling "yad" and "reading stick/wand" and found zip.

Knowing how people get carried away with euphemisms I shudder to think what those search terms might throw up. :D

A surprising number of conductor wands, metal detecting wands and various wiccan varieties. Not too many of the more...intimate kind.

Well look at some of these:

and tell me these aren't the original, stereotypical wizard wands.
