The Ana Bekoach Prayer

1/14/2013 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.

ANA BEKOACH HAND ENGRAVED GOLD & SILVER BRACELET 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.

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".
