Product Description

Jewish Prayer

       “Shema Israel” are the first two words of a section of the Torah (Hebrew Bible) that is a centerpiece of the morning and evening Jewish prayer services.  The first verse encapsulates the monotheistic essence of Judaism: "Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord is One."

       It is the most important prayer in Judaism, and first prayer that a Jewish child is taught to say.  It is the last words a Jew says prior to death.

       24 Karat gold-plate over pewter.  Enhanced by a sapphire crystal.  18" Gold-plate chain.

      Pin/pendant measures approximately 1.3" x 1.1".
