This very special fine art laser-cut design celebrates THE PRIESTLY BLESSING (also known in rabbinic literature as raising of the hands.) This piece will be meaningful to both Jews and Christians alike.
What is the Priestly Blessing? In the Torah (Numbers 6:24-26), G-d commanded that through the priests’ raised hands His blessing will flow to the people of Israel. It is a blessing thousands of years old and I have included three short verses.
With only paper and a special artist’s cutting tool, I created this unique work of art for the wall featuring The Priestly Blessing. The abstract Hebrew text appears as if it is gently tumbling down in rainfall of beauty. Guests will definitely be in awe when they see it!
The Hebrew text says:
"יברכך ה׳ וישמרך יאר ה׳ פניו אליך ויחנך ישא ה׳ פניו אליך וישם לך שלום" *
Phonetic Pronunciation: Yivarechecha Adonai viyishmirecha Ya'er panav elecha veechuneka Yeesa Adonai panav elecha viyasem lecha shalom
English translation: "May Hashem [The Lord] bless you and guard you. May Hashem shine His countenance upon you and be gracious to you. May Hashem turn His countenance toward you and grant you peace.' (Numbers 6:24-26).
Every word of these powerful phrases contains a world of meaning.
Each day, the Hebrew Priests bless their worshipers at the Morning Prayer. In the priesthood, the Kohanim - the Hebrew Priests - pass down to their sons the role of the priest. The first High Priest was Aaron, the brother of Moses, and all priests today are his descendants. Are you a descendant? I am. You might be too...
Hang this rich, meaningful home blessing in your baby's nursery or anywhere in your home.
Or gift it to anyone who you care very much about. The unique, decorative home blessing makes a wonderful housewarming gift, wedding gift, anniversary gift, baby shower gift or lovely decoration for any home.
