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.

Hamsa ben porat Josef framed designed by the israeli artist Shraga Landesman
Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall (Genesis 49:22, King James Version)
This is the blessing Jacob gives to Joseph before his death. We find this verse written on amulets from the first century, and with good reason. In Talmudic times, Talmudic sages taught that Joseph and his descendants were protected against the Evil Eye; that is, the Evil Eye has no power over them. The Talmud compares Joseph’s descendants to fish in the sea—the water covers them, so the Evil Eye can’t control them. So it is for Joseph’s descendants, too: the Evil Eye can’t control them.
