Can someone recommend a shtender to hold a volume of Gemara? I am looking for one with the following features -

  1. Adjusts for angle
  2. Adjusts for height
  3. Has page holders to keep the pages open
  4. Fits a standard size gemara volume
  5. Sits on a table
  • In Israel or the US ?

    As @Dov mentioned, page holders aren't a common feature but you can buy spring clips in pretty much any shape or size imaginable and add them to your shtender afterwards

  • Depending on your budget, you can hire someone to make a custom shtender to your specifications.

So there are several - although page holders are not necessarily a common feature.

(Just as an aside, it is worth noting that there is a limitation with shtenders that can be adjusted for height/angle and that is, that since they are made to move you don't often find them with room for storage like you would with the static table top shtenders e.g. here)

This one is a standard model, with there being many variations on a theme e.g. here and here:

enter image description here

It has different incline positions and can be adjusted for height. It fits a Gemara and is made to sit on a table.


This is not a "shtender" per se, but it fulfils all your critera... You can alter height and incline, it goes on a table and has page holders.

  • Thank you. Do any of these come with page holders?

    Personally I have not seen one with page holders on shtenders that adjust by height but only on incline alone e.g. thefrumshoppingmall.com/products/…
