Hineyni - Here I am
That still small voice nudges us to do something. Oh, but how easy it is to override that voice, or to let fear of change drown it out.
When I was very ill, it was hard for me to imagine that I would get better and be part of the world again. But repeating a key phrase gave me the courage to take actions.
In the Torah (the Bible), the prophet Isaiah hears a voice calling for a messenger. And Isaiah answers, Hineyni–Here I am, shlakheyni–send me.
External aids help us remember to keep repeating key phrases like this, ones that give us courage and help us move along.
So I've designed three products to help. The T-shirt has the hineyni (here I am) on the front in Hebrew and English, and the shlakheyni (send me) on the back.
The card has the hineyni on the front, and the shlakheyni on the inside. The back lists suggestions for what to do with the card, such as thanking a person or group for speaking up or being a messenger in some other way, or to encourage someone in pursuing a new venture.
And a magnet, which contains the full text, is perfect for the refrigerator, filing cabinet, or washing machine.
You may have seen these products at the ALEPH Kallah or around Tucson.
