It is a wonderful custom in Jewish households for the parents to bless the children every Friday night, mirroring the blessing that Jacob bestowed upon his grandsons, Ephraim and Menashe, who he said would become a blessing for the Jewish people throughout the generations. The words of the blessing of a son read: "May G-d make you like Ephraim and Menashe, May G-d bless you and guard you, May G-d show you favor and be gracious to you, May G-d show you kindness and grant you peace", and is beautifully captured in Hebrew on this print by artist and Rabbi, Gil Schwartzman. Alongside the text of this lovely blessing is a stunning illustration of a crab, the symbol of the Cancer, one half vibrantly colored in deep shades of blue and the other half in fiery shades of oranges, reds and yellows. The stark contrast between these two colors represents the contrasts between fire and water, day and night. The print comes encapsulated between two pieces of Plexiglass and is doubled framed in a graceful blue border. A powerful and inspiring blessing, this exquisite piece of art brings together the spiritual powers of the Holy Letters and the infinite wisdom of Jewish astrology to imbue your child with blessing, light and guidance in all that they may do.
