Hear O Israel: Top Shema Yisrael Jewelry Pieces
Shema Yisrael (often known as simply the "Shema") is Judaism's most important prayer and is the centerpiece of the morning and evening prayer services. The words of the Shema are one of the first prayers children learn to say before going to bed and are also the last words many Jews utter before passing away. Taken from the Book of Deuteronomy, this poignant prayer opens with "Hear, O Israel: the Lord is Our God, the Lord is One" - the classic Jewish declaration of faith, also believed to be imbued with mystical meaning and protective qualities. (To learn more about this special prayer and its magic, check out our blog post here.)
Wearing this special verse, or the opening words "Shema Yisrael", on gorgeous pieces of jewelry is a meaningful and stylish way to display your Jewish faith and identity, and is also traditionally seen as a protective amulet. From necklaces to rings and from bracelets to earrings, we have a stunning collection of Shema Yisrael jewelry pieces for you to browse, but here are some of the top picks that we like best!
