P.S. The students asked me What is Sefer Torah?
The Text of Torah (Five Books of Moses) is written on parchment with hebrew quadratic letters without vocalization (nikud, stippling) and wound on two wooden poles we call the Sefer Torah, or the Holy Scroll.
The Sefer Torah in the kenasa is kept according to ancient Karaite custom in a round, hexagonal box.

Karaites take the Sefer  Torah for reading out of the Hekhal only during the Great Holidays and during the days of Holy Assembly.
