Bishvili Nivra HaOlam - 2-Sided Card
Width: 3.5 inches
Height: 2 inches
"Rabbi Simcha Bunim teaches: Every person should have two pockets. In one pocket should be a piece of paper saying: 'I am only dust and ashes.' When one is feeling too proud, reach into this pocket and take out this paper and read it. In the other pocket should be a piece of paper saying: 'For my sake was the world created.' When one is feeling disheartened and lowly, reach into this pocket and take this paper out and read it. We are each the joining of two worlds. We are fashioned from clay, but our spirit is the breath of Adonai."
—Martin Buber, Tales of The Hasidim Later Masters, pp. 249-50

This is such a clever yet meaningful item. I carry it everywhere!
I didn't read the description properly and bought the 8x11 matted to 11x14 - it is exactly as presented/described but I thought it was framed. It is not. Again the mistake was totally on me. This is beautiful and high quality. Im excited to hang it in my kids playroom.
I absolutely adore these. The colours and typography are beautiful. They're among my best friend's core principles, and I loved being able to hang these in her new baby daughter's nursery (at my house). They're the first decorations I've put up, and already the room feels warm and welcoming for little Miriam. Thank you so much!
