Ana be’koah necklace
Ana be’koah necklace designed by the israeli artist Shraga Landesman.
The main design and the story of this necklace comes by a quote from the bible (“Ana B’koach”) in
a circle pendant that hang on body by a silver chain.
Ana B’koach [We beg thee with the strength (and greatness of thy right arm.)]
This liturgical poem is part of the morning prayers . It was written in the Middle Ages by Rabbi
Nehunia ben Hakaneh. The poem is composed of seven lines with six words each. The initial
letters of each word can be combined to make a name of 42 letters. According to Kabbalah, this is
one of the names of G_d.
Ari-Hakadosh (Yitzhak Ben Shlomo Ashkenazi) of Tzfat wrote in his book that without this prayer,
a person cannot advance to the next spiritual level. This is why the prayer should be said each
morning. According to The Zohar, the words of “Ana B’koach” are the wings of angels, helping us
to advance to the next level.
