From the 5th commandment to honor thy mother and father (Exodus 20:12), to the importance of educating children (Proverbs 22:6) and the topic of inheritance discussed often in the scriptures, the bible is strewn with references regarding the importance of family and home. Indeed, one’s home is considered to be a steadfast of the lord.
The prominence of the home in Judaism is emblazoned in the beautiful prayer of unknown origin, the “Birkat Habayit” (The Home Blessing):
“Through this gate no sorrow will come.
In this dwelling no trouble will come.
Through this door no fright will come.
In this division no divisiveness will come.
In this place there will be blessings and peace.”
So enamored are with we with this prayer and the ideas behind it, that the blessing, whether appearing on a dedicated plaque or inscribed on a Hamsa, is gifted time and again in Jewish (and, often, non-Jewish) house warmings the world over.
