The Hebrew prayer, Shema Israel, is the most important prayer in the Jewish religion. It symbolically reads in Hebrew, "Hear O'Israel, the Lord is Our G-d, the Lord is One." Only a portion of the scripture is actually on the pendant. What a lovely testament to one's faith, making this the perfect gift for any occasion. With a hint of skin showing through the lettering, this light and airy pendant is ideal for everyday wear. Holding the history and words of scripture so close to your heart is priceless.
