Disc Pendant with Prayer Inscription from "Eshet Chayil" & Ruby Gemstone
This dazzling, sterling silver pendant is engraved with the words, "Rabot banot asu chayil v'at alit al'kul,anah" from the "Eshet Chayil" prayer. A small ruby gemstone in the center offers that feminine touch.
"Rabot banot asu chayil v'at alit al'kul,anah", meaning: " Many women have done excellently, but your surpass them all" is a verse from the prayer "Eshet Chayil". "Eshet Chayil" is sung at every Friday night Shabbat table. This custom was initiated by kabbalists in the 17th century, who viewed Shabbat as an occasion of mystical union with the Divine. They understood Eshet Chayil allegorically as a representation of the Shekhina, the feminine presence of God, with the Woman of Valor being the Sabbath, whom we had welcomed, with renewed energy, into our midst. Another meaning is that singing this proverb was also an occasion to offer appreciation for mothers who cook, bake, sew and prepare the Shabbat dinner. The valorous woman in Proverbs 31 never sits still, let alone rests. Her light never goes out and she rises from her bed when it is still dark. Ruby stands for the tribe of Reuben and has healing influences to the heart and is self-charging in positive energy.
