The Shema Yisrael Hebrew inscription: May Michael be on my right, Gabriel on my left, Uriel before me, and behind me Raphael, and above my head God’s Presence.
ועל ראשי ומעל תחתי שכינת אל
Invoke the angelic protection of the archangels from the bedtime Shema prayer with these ancient words. According to the Jewish tradition, when we drift off to sleep we entrust our souls to God’s care. Then, as we wake and sing the modah ani, we express gratitude to God for returning our souls to us and granting us another day. Sleep signifies releasing the burdens of the day and relinquishing control. While asleep, we must trust that our hearts will continue beating and that the world will keep turning.
The Shema ring sits beautifully on its own or can be stacked with the Petite Petals ring. For more motifs within the Judaica Jewelry Collection, see our ancient Menorah ring.
