The Traveler Prayer

1/14/13 4:32 AM

Star of David Jewish Prayer PendantThe Traveler's Prayer, Wayfarer's Prayer or, in Hebrew, "Tefilat HaDerech" is the prayer that petitions the Divine for safe journeys. This is an appropriate prayer for sea, air and even long trips in a car.

The blessing is recited at the outset of each journey and is preferably recited standing. Often it is inscribed on Jewish Jewelry pieces and Hamsa Hands instead of the Blessing for the home, or the Shema Prayer. Keep in mind, all forms of travel, involve a degree of danger. Consequently, we say "Tefilat Haderech".

The Ana Bekoach Prayer

1/14/13 4:40 AM

Ana BeKoach, g'du-lat y'min-cha ta-tir, tze-ru-ra: We beg Thee, with the strength and goodness of Thy right arm, Untangle our knotted fate.

Jewish Jewelry Ana BeKoach Necklace So begins one of the most significant prayers connected with the Kabbalah. The Ana BeKoach prayer, also chanted by Jews each Friday night, has an unknown author, and is attributed to have been written around the Second Century C.E. The prayer is made up of seven sentences which are supposed to correspond with the seven days of the week. The Kabbalistic meaning is even more pronounced as the prayer itself is actually a form of code for the name of God. Each letter corresponds to its numerical position within the Hebrew alphabet, and if you add up the first letters of each word you have the number 42, which is encoded to be first 42 letters of the Book of Genesis.

Bar Mitzvah Judaica Gifts

1/14/13 4:47 AM

Judaica Bar Mitzvah Gift Leather Hamsa Bracelet The Bar Mitzvah ceremony is Judaism's second most important ceremony for Jewish males, the first being ritual circumcision on the eighth day of life. While ritual circumcision, or Brit Mila, initiates a male Jewish child into the covenant of his people, the ceremony of Bar Mitzvah initiates a boy into manhood at age 13. Upon reaching this plateau, a young man obtains the rights of Jewish Manhood, including being counted in a Minyan or prayer group requiring at least 10 Jewish males to conduct formal Jewish prayer. It also allows a young man the honor of being called to the Torah, Judaism's most sacred text, and is a major milestone in his Jewish education and preparation towards all the responsibilities of an adult, including marriage and heading a family.
