Show your gratitude – to your parents, teachers, neighbors, nurses, doctors, significant others, and whoever else made a positive impression on your life. In Jewish tradition, the idea of hakarat ha-tov, or “acknowledging the good” that others did for us is a mitzvah. We are told to be aware of all the good others do for us (directly or indirectly).
Let your friends and loved ones know you think about them in their sickness. Sends words of prayer – either the basic “refuah shlemah” which means “[I pray for your] full recovery”, or the longer quotes from Jewish prayer for the sick. Some are taken from the prayer Misheberach, others, from the Shemone Esre (Amida) prayer.
Eshet Chayil is the much-beloved hymn to a Woman of Valor sung by King Salomon (Proverbs 31). This song is traditionally sung on Shabbat but is also considered the perfect poem to praise the perfect woman in your life. I’ve prepared designs with full texts of the hymn and quotes take out of it. Each item is the perfect design for decorating one’s home or to present as a gift – for your Shabbat hosts, for a bride, your Mom, a teacher, or a bat mitzvah.
