Your Special Hebrew NameA name is not just a bunch of letters combined in a way to call to someone across the room or in a classroom. Its so much more than that. It helps give life to the soul of the individual, define their personality and traits and more. In fact, the Kabbalists say that when parents name a child, they experience a minor prophecy—because, somehow, that child’s destiny is wrapped up in the combination of Hebrew letters that make up his or her name. Tradition also tells us that the Jews of ancient Egypt kept their Jewish names given to them by their parents. That’s one of the ways they stayed together as a people and merited redemption.
