This sleek, sterling silver bracelet is engraved with the most essential prayer in Judaism — the shema —as well as the first section of the v’ahavta. The mobius shape of this piece turns easily on the wrist, allowing you to read the English and Hebrew engraving with ease even as you wear it. The unique mathematical qualities of the mobius strip make this an excellent gift for the mathematically or scientifically inclined, while the Shema makes this a great conversion gift.

You shall love Adonai your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might. Take to heart these instructions with which I charge you this day. Impress them upon your children. Recite them when you stay at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them serve as a symbol on your forehead; inscribe them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
