The Ani L'Dodi Anniversary piece is exquisite, and stunningly matted. My hat is off to you!

And I love the Song of Solomon reference, too. Jews aren't the only ones who treasure that imagery, you know.  Cool

That's gorgeous!

I have to ask tho <-- clueless

Is this like a wellknown symbol so that even non-Jewish people would enjoy?  Did the request this or is this just something a lot of pple like? Smiley  I'm sorry I just haven't ever seen this imagery or heard of the phrase Wink  thanks!

Well the Star of David is pretty well-known but I don't think the "ani l'dodi" phrase is as well-known as the star. But, as evidenced by the posts here, a lot of non-jewish folk have it engraved on wedding bands and such (come to think on it, FIL *does* have some hebrew on his wedding band, I wonder if it is this phrase... I've never asked). I personally had never heard of it until I came across this piece but I am rather fond of the sentiment behind it.

My inlaws didn't request it, I just saw it and *instantly* knew they'd like it. They're Christians and do a lot of missionary work in Israel so I guess that's why they're personally drawn to such things. They have a lot of jewish paraphernalia around their house (mezuzahs, menorahs, etc) so I knew it would fit right in. Smiley

Ani L'Dodi is the most well-known quote from "Shir HaShirim", or "The Song of Songs", written by King Solomon in the language of a beautiful, romantic declaration between a husband and wife, as an allegory for the love between the people of Israel (the Jews) and Hashem.

It like the SOD is one of the more recognized items for Judaica.

Beautiful work!

The Ani L'Dodi is absolutely beautiful!  Now I have to figure out a way to make it for my live-in FDH before our wedding without ruining the surprise (though... he is a better stitcher than me... maybe I'll give him the kit  Wink). 

Since our rings will have "Ze Dodi Veze Re'ei" (This is my beloved and this is my friend) engraved on them, I really wanted to do something with Ani L'Dodi as well! Thank you for linking to the kit!

The kit also has the option to NOT do the personalization and just continues around the border with the phrase "I am my beloved's..." if anyone's interested in doing it that way.
