Where do I buy Shema Israel Hebrew piece of jewelry, and why would I wear one?
You're probably wondering about that since you're here on this page.
Hebrew jewelry with the biblical blessing, Shema Israel, from the Book of Deuteronomy 6:4, says "Hear O' Israel, the Lord is Our God, the Lord is One."
Read an in-depth article here all about the prayer itself.
In this post we're just going to share the individual pieces of jewelry with you.
How does that sound?
Why would you want to wear jewelry with the words from Torah on them?
The answer we most often receive is that the words of God, the Torah, are close to your heart and soul.
They are there when you breathe, when you walk, sleep, talk. The words are there when you need them-- be them good or questionable.
The words are there when you need physical and emotional comfort.
We've had more than a few customers buy the Shema bracelet for a loved one in the hospital. One lady from Atlanta told us that she wanted her niece to one day open her eyes and the first thing to see is the Shema Israel bracelet on her wrist.
Aside from healing, the Shema Israel prayer jewelry is also worn for celebrations such as a Bar Mitzvah or a Bat Mitzah, when a young Jewish male or female takes on the commandments of Judaism. Now, you don't have to be only 12 or 13 years old for this celebration, you can even be an adult or mature adult and read from the Torah, thus, taking on the commandments.
Doesn't he look handsome wearing the Shema prayer?
Of course he does!
The leather bracelet (in black or brown leather) is great for either a man or a woman. It adjusts to fit small to large wrists, so it is unisex in nature. Gorgeous in design!
The Bat Mitzvah girls also love (and truthfully speaking) deserve a Shema Israel piece of jewelry.
The work and dedication of learning about their religion, how to read Hebrew and chant the prayers does include reciting the Shema Israel prayer.
Therefore, it's the ideal, perfect, gift to give for a Bat Mitzvah when you really think of it.
And the pieces of jewelry look fabulous on, too!
But, what if I am not a Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah age person?
I am an adult and want to have a piece of my religion and faith on my body?
Oh, don't you worry!
We've got some pieces there for you!
(I wish my hair was constantly styled like this, too. Don't you?)
Seriously speaking, the Hebrew pieces of jewelry are designed to be worn everyday. Mix them in with your good jewelry, your costume jewelry, just wear them!
Whatever your choices are, we hope you'll add a piece of jewelry that touches your heart and speaks to your soul. And be proud of your faith.
But, why wouldn't you be?

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.
