The most common and basic form of a blessing for any home or office is, of course, the in Mezuzah, a cased scroll parchment that Jews fix on their doorposts, as the Torah explicitly instructs us to do. This parchment contains Biblical verses that laud God and His oneness and remind us of the miracles He performed for us, like the splitting of the sea and other events pertinent to the most famous Exodus in history. However,many Jewish homes and offices will also have wall-hangings or accessories as additional blessings, with either personal dedications or commonly used, non-Biblical blessings.
Home blessings are, naturally, one of the most popular house-warming gift. Depending on personal style, home blessings can be anywhere from small pieces of metal with an inscription to very large plaque with an elaborate blessing.
Of course, the text of the blessing is not the only thing that is completely up to the person who is purchasing the blessing. There are many types of blessings, including blessings over synagogue items such as Tallitot. A popular trend as of late is to display these synagogue blessings in stained glass. Stained glass is not only beautiful but it can also be very vividly colorful. This is a good choice if you want to add color to a solemn-looking living-room or office, or if you want to enhance an already-exuberant place. If you like Jerusalem there are many options for you. For instance, you can purchase a 15? X 15? stained glass blessing that will have a beautiful drawing of the Jerusalem walls in gold, on top of which include the blessing itself in a matching color.
There are many popular types of blessings: stained glass, ceramic, wood, to name just three. Lately, stone blessings have gained massive popularity. These are designed as an open scroll and are meant to be used as either as a mantle-piece or a wall hanging. These can be a great gift for a couple who just had a baby. In this case, of course, the blessing would be different. Usually it bears the name of the new-born and wishes him or her prosperity and future success. Of course, adding their Hebrew name is always a great idea.
Another important type of blessing is the birkas haderech, or journey blessing. As opposed to some other types of blessings, in this case there is one version of blessing that is commonly used and accepted. As for the design of the blessing, there are Hamsa key-chain journey blessings, pens bearing the text of the blessing, and more.
