Sheva Brachot Set
Sheva Brachot (שבע ברכות), meaning “the seven blessings,” also known as “the wedding blessings,” are blessings that are recited for a bride and groom as part of the wedding ceremony. Though the Sheva Brachot are a stylistically harmonious whole, they are actually a mosaic of interwoven Biblical words, phrases and ideas.
Using her unique and colorful style of Hebrew calligraphy, her eye-catching spectrum of colors enhanced by delicate forms and sketches and a single metal plate for each blessing, Israeli artist and noted calligrapher Oshrit Raffeld creates a beautiful set of the seven blessings. The set integrates convenience and practicality with elegant design. The set consists of 7 individual plates, with one blessing on each; each blessing plate is physically larger than the one before it so that all the plates can be viewed at once. The individual blessings can be stored in a beautiful leather binder, itself decorated on the outside with a calligraphied plate titled, in Hebrew, “The Order of Betrothal for a Married Couple” (the formal name for the Sheva Brachot); on one side of of the binder’s interior is the introductory prayer; on the other side the blessing over the wine.
