Writings in Hebrew

I have been asked by a friend if I could write something for her in Hebrew. It’s not the first time that someone asked me that and I am really happy to fulfil this wish. Even though I think my handwriting is awful. I might even be tempted to spend a few quiet minutes with calligraphy. Maybe it is just a question of practice, who knows.

When a colleague heard about it and asked me for a handwritten paper for her living room, she told me, that she doesn’t care what I will write. She just liked the idea of having a special and different picture on the wall. I even could write a lot of brand names one after the other, nobody will understand anyway, she said. Uhm, yes maybe, but I do care about it.

And so I wrote the Lord’s Prayer:

And the beginning of the Shema Yisrael Prayer:

Sh’ma Yisra’eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad. Barukh sheim k’vod malkhuto l’olam va’ed.

Hear, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One. Blessed be the Name of His glorious kingdom for ever and ever.

And if you are wondering what is written on my bracelet, it means “everything is possible”. We only have to remember that from time to time.

      1. Oh wie toll! Das freut mich sehr! Ich habe ein Set von edding bestehend aus drei Stiften (2.0, 3.5 und 5.0 mm Spitze). Das finde ich ganz gut, da es lichtbeständig und wetterfest ist und auf allen denkbaren Untergründen hält. Man weiß ja nie, auf welche Ideen man noch so kommt. 😉

      2. Danke für den Tipp, denn mit meinem bin ich gar nicht zufrieden. Die Spitze ist zu weich und verliert schon nach zwei Tagen ihre Form. Es gibt auch Kalligraphie-Füllfederhalter mit auswechselbarer Feder – für ein edleres Schreibgefühl 😉 Bin grad am Forschen… Eine Wissenschaft für sich.

      3. Oh nein, das sollte wirklich länger halten. Ich habe auch noch ein Schönschreibfüllhalter Set von der Firma “online” mit 0.8, 1.4 und 1.8 mm Spitzen. Es kommt darauf an, was man machen möchte. Schreibe ich nur schnell Notizen in Hebräisch nutze ich gern den Füller.
