Every religion has a prayer, “Thee Prayer.” In Judaism, it is the Shema Israel Prayer found in the Book of Deuteronomy 6:4. It serves as the centerpiece of both the morning and evening prayers, and the first verse translates as follows: "Hear, O Israel: the LORD Our God, the LORD is One.” _______________________________
As children, we are taught this prayer and no matter where you go in the world, no matter how religious you are, or aren’t, you know this prayer. It is almost what unites us, to put it lightly, when we don’t share the same language or customs.
I remember many times when showing this bracelet to someone and I say it is Hebrew, and the customer cannot read the language and are not religiousl, immediately ask is it the Shema Prayer? And each person then tells a story with their memories of the prayer. It is a touching moment for all, a moment we love to hear about when selling jewelry. The stories, the feelings, the connection made again through a prayer to our fellow people around the world.
