Handmade in California
Beautiful sterling silver necklace with the Hebrew words, "Shema Israel" imprinted in the pendant with the texture of the Western Wall in Jerusalem. Observant Jews consider the Shema to be the most important part of the prayer service in Judaism, and its twice-daily recitation as a mitzvah (religious commandment). It is traditional for Jews to say the Shema as their last words, and for parents to teach their children to say it before they go to sleep at night.
Liza Shtromberg was born in Moscow and lived in Israel before moving to Los Angeles, CA. Inspired by her father, who had a jewelry gallery in the old quarter of Jaffo in Israel, Liza has been designing jewelry since she was a child. Her Hebrew collection honors the cultural and mystical essence of the Jewish people. Each piece in the Hebrew collection is made with an imprint of the Kotel - the Western Wall of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.
