“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: The first prayer a Jewish child is taught to say, and last words a Jew says prior to death.
