The Shema - Translation

Hear, O Israel: The L-rd is our G-d, the L-rd is One.

Praised be G-d's glorious sovereignty for ever and ever.


The V'Ahavta - Translation

You shall love thw L-rd your G-d with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your might.  You shall take to heart these words which I command you this day.  You shall teach them diligently to your children, speaking of them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down at night and when you rise up in the morning.  You shall bind them as a sign upon your arm, and they shall be a reminder above your eyes.  You shall inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your gates.
