Blessing of the Home No. 2 (Birkat Habayit)

90.00

This blessing, which, in slight variations, hangs in many homes and stores in Israel, is written in a very archaic Hebrew, with both rhythm and rhymes throughout. Its literal translation is as follows:

Through this gate / May there come no grief. / Into this abode / May there come no malediction. / To this home / May there come no sadness. / From this place / May Peace never depart. / In this family / May there be friendship and joy.

The blessing below reads: May this home be blessed with peace and prosperity, health and harmony, love and laughter.

The seven species of the land of Israel, pomegranates, olives, grapes, dates, figs, wheat and barley, surround this gate, symbolizing richness, abundance and a time of peace and tranquility, when people can sit under their grape vine and fig tree and learn war no more (Micah, 4:4).
