About Sifre Tora and ornaments
Sifre Tora are dressed according to the day they are used.

The Sefarim are placed in the Hechal in a specific order, according to these rules:
This can be applied for the small Hechal, as it has a middle place. The big Hechal has an even number of fixed places, and therefore has no middle place. The first Sefer goes right from the middle (there is no middle place so right from the middle is most important). the second to its left, to surround the center of the Hechal and the third goes to the right of the first, to have it surrounded.
