Great for children and grownups too! The traditional Jewish bedtime prayer is the Bedtime Shema or "Kriat Shema Al Ha-Mita", which includes the first paragraph of the well-known Shema prayer, as well as the blessing "Ha-Mapil." Prior to going to sleep, many Jews recite some, if not all, of the included prayers which are believed to bring peace and comfort to our sleep.

One purpose of the bedtime Shema is so that one should fall asleep while saying words of Torah. The Torah prescribes that one should recite the Shema “when you lie down and when you rise up” (Deuteronomy 6:7, 11:9). Thus, the bedtime prayers are structured around the Shema which many Jews believe will protect them for the afterlife if they unexpectedly die while sleeping. The Talmud also says that when you go to sleep at night, your soul goes up to heaven for a daily accounting -- leaving your body "unprotected," so we say the blessing Ha-Mapil to counteract that. Other prayers include Psalm 91 and Psalm 3.

Available in 7 different color schemes: plum purple, turquoise (aqua), pink, spring green, slate blue, mint green, plus celestial (dark blue with yellow and white). Additional colors are available as a custom order.
