The excavations at Ketef Hinom, overlooking the walls of the Old City, revealed part of the cemetery that served Jerusalem in the days of the First Temple. Discovered in one of the burial caves cut into the bedrock were two tiny silver scrolls incised with letters in ancient Hebrew script. The smaller plaque reads “The Lord bless thee and keep thee; the Lord make his face shine upon thee and give thee peace” – a text that is almost identical to the Priestly Benediction appearing in the Book of Numbers. The larger plaque bears a slightly different version of the same blessing. These verses are the oldest versions we know of, antedating the biblical fragments appearing in the Dead Sea Scrolls by some four hundred years. 

This unique, beautiful, and delicate pendant is made of silver. Suitable for any age and gender, it is sure to make an exciting addition to your jewelry collection.

Did You Know? The use of amulets dates from ancient times and continues to this day. Amulets were intended to protect the wearer, his family, and his possessions from natural disasters, spells, and the evil eye. Some were thought to bear healing properties or aid fertility; others protected the wearer on his travels, conferred blessings and good fortune, or elicited the good will and love of others. The magical power attributed to Jewish amulets stems from the versions of God’s name or Biblical verses inscribed on them. For extra protection, the name of the wearer was sometimes added.
