I really enjoyed the service and level of interaction with Israel Catalog.com. The service was excellent the site had all the info I looked for and if I had any questions about the products Avi, an excellent Customer Service Rep was there to answer my questions. Not only will I be shopping again from Israel Catalog.com. I will be making sure that my family and friends looking for similar products shop there as well. Once you find an organization with such a good customer service, you have to support them to show the rest of the business the kind of service and commitment shoppers need. I purchase two “Sterling Silver Block Letters, Hebrew Name Necklaces and three more items” and I loved them. My granddaughter was delighted and feels special that her B-day gift came all the way from Israel. Thank you, Israel Catalog.com
Blessing of the Home - Birkat HaBayit
Blessing of the Home Birkat HaBayit Kings 1 5:5 Isaiah 65: 21-23
Vibrant song birds, graceful butterflies, bountiful fig trees, luscious grape vines, palm and pine trees, a profusion of color with roses and hibiscus all exquisitely detailed, flowing along day to month, season after season in this Blessing of the Home. Great tranquility, joy and hope for the present and the future envelop Ellen Miller Braun when she gazes from this inspiring, picturesque view from her home in the heart of Samaria, Israel. Ellen often uses Jewish numerology with her work, where the letters of the Hebrew alphabet have numerical value. This Blessing of the Home has the Scriptural verses written 166 times. Why 166? One hundred sixty five inscriptions create the homes and gardens surrounding the central window. The letters of the Hebrew expression 'L'Chayim Tovim' - For a Good Life, equal 165. One additional inscription in the center of the piece represents the singular 'Spirit of G-d,' 'Ruach HaKodesh.' With His Blessing, the Gift of Life flows into and through our homes. A Blessed Home is truly a Good Life. May we all be so blessed. 'They dwelt in safety, each man under his vine and under his fig tree…And they built houses and inhabit them, and they planted vineyards and eat the fruit of them…And my chosen ones shall long enjoy the work of their hands…for they are the seed of the blessed of the L-rd and their offspring with them.'+Ellen Miller Braun was born and educated in Chicago Illinois, U.S.A. She studied fine arts at Northeastern Illinois University. An ardent Zionist, Ellen immigrated to Israel with her husband and children in 1983. They live in Ginot Shomron, in the Biblical hills of Samaria. Ellen's traditionally observant Jewish background has guided and inspired her in the development of the Biblical themes of her artwork.
