You've been searching the internet for a necklace with a Hebrew name.
Google, Amazon, Etsy all appear when you search---- and they each show you the same personalized Hebrew name necklace.
They do look good, and they make a lovely Bat Mitzvah gift.
But, what if you're looking for something edgy?
Personal Hebrew jewelry that isn't on the average Jewish teenage neck?
A Hebrew initial charm?
Tal Gerber Style wearing a Tet Letter for her name: Tal
Stunning Hebrew name on a gold chain.
It's just the perfect "adult" necklace to walk down the streets of Manhattan, or to wear on a snowy day when color is "everything!"
The letter Bet for Betty on a long paperclip chain.
Styling Hebrew jewelry shouldn't be difficult.
And as you can see, it isn't.
Instead, it's bold, edgy, chic and WOW!
It makes a statement.
But, why would you have a Hebrew name?
I mean, does everyone have a name in Hebrew?
Jewish tradition names a baby after a loved one, or in honor of a loved one. It is a way to carry one's memory from generation to generation.
Of course, as Jews have moved from continent to continent and country to country, they adopt the cultures and names of the place they are living in, but will almost always have a Hebrew name. For example, Tova would become Toby or Yehudit would become Judith. Chaim would become Harry and Mendel would transfer over to possibly Max.
So, it's that culture we honor here.
The preservation of a Hebrew name.
But, what if we don't have a Hebrew name and we aren't Jewish?
Can we wear a Hebrew initial still?
Would that be ok?
And the answer in all caps is YES!
Sharon isn't Jewish and her Shin for Sharon is on-point.
She told us, "as a Christian woman, I respect the Jewish faith and hold it close to my heart."
We think that is beautiful, and she is a strong, fashionable mom-of-4!
And Yardena, of Yardena's closet, also a new mom, is wearing her YUD.
This is on a micro paperclip chain, a more minimal look that is equally as stunning.
And, since we're talking chains...
So, Yardena has the micro paperclip chain on.
And Hebrew Lesson has on the medium paperclip chain.
Her name is Miriam, so she has a mem.
The chain is a bit heavier, so a more bold look.
This is worn at 24", so it's easy to drape over your head and layer as shown.
If you don't know the chosen letter for your name in Hebrew, just ask.
We have Hebrew letters in silver and gold and with each letter unique to your name, we've got you covered.
From Alissa to Zara (that's alef to Zayin) or Esther to Tamar (alef to taf), we've got your letter. And here's another tidbit of information-- Yiddish letters are the same alphabet as Hebrew.
So, if you're concerned your name is Yiddish and not Hebrew-- put your troubles aside. Shayna and Gittels are covered with Alef Bet Jewelry's Hebrew initial collection of necklaces.
And one more thing-- if you'd don't need a chain, just purchase the Hebrew letter.
No need to buy something you won't use, right?
That's exactly what @aryeh23 did.
See the letters here.
It's time to take ownership of personalized jewelry that speaks right to us-- our past, our future, our heritage, our religious faith, and our style.
Next time you're thinking of how to connect to your Judaism, look no further than Alef Bet's Hebrew initial jewelry collection.
It's not your average piece of jewelry, right?
What's your Hebrew name?
What is a hamsa hand amulet?
Most commonly, it is just known as a hamsa or spelled as chamsa, even khamsa.
There are many interpretations of these particular usages.
The hand is often depicted with an eye in the center of its open palm, presumably to ward off negative energies, including the gaze of envy.
