Ready for framing, this stunning work of art will draw gasps of wonder from all who behold it! It is an original design by Jerusalem artist David Fisher. Inspired by ancient Hebrew manuscripts, it feaures the entire Hebrew Biblical verses from the Priestly Blessing, Yevarechecha Hashem Veyishmerecha, Yaer Hashem Panav Elecha Vichuneka, Yisa Hashem Panav Elecha Veyasem Lecha Shalom ("May Hashem (The Lord) bless you and guard you . . .") (Numbers 6:24-26). Every word of this powerful phrase contains a world of meaning. The text in the center, surrounded by an incredibly ornate foliate motif and a pair of hands giving the Torah's Priestly Blessing.
The verse inside the upper arch is the conclusion of the Prietly Blessing, Vesamu eth shmi al bnei Israel, va'ani avarechem (And they [the priests] shall place My name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them) (Numbers 6:27).
The holy names are not spelled out, in order to avoid any desecration.
