These pieces of jewelry beautifully represent the earliest daily prayer in Judaism. The Shema Yisrael is a prayer spoken in the morning and in the evening, and it expresses a central belief in the Jewish faith. "Hear, O Israel: the LORD is our G-d, the LORD is One" expresses the belief in the only one, true G-d. It is spoken as the final prayer of Yom Kippur, the most spiritual day of the year, and should be the last words spoken before death. Historically, the words of the Shema come from the sixth chapter of Deuteronomy. Later, verses from Deuteronomy 11 and Numbers 15 were added. At some point in Jewish history, the reciting of the Ten Commandments was removed from daily prayer, so the additional verses that were added also memorialize the Ten Commandments.
The reciting of the Shema Yisrael has layers of significance. It is a reminder of the ways in which one's faith should be lived out: by loving G-d with your whole self, teaching G-d's ways to your children, and repeating the prayer in the morning and as the last words of each day. Further, the prayer reminds the person of faith that following G-d's commands will result in blessings.
These pendants, necklaces, and key chain are an excellent way to remind one's self of the central part of the Jewish faith. As a gift for a special occasion or for no reason at all, they would represent a special blessing of G-d's peace and protection to the wearer.
