How is the divine presence connected to Jewelry? Mina D explains

Have you ever wondered about the significance of jewelry in religious traditions? Mina D sheds light on the connection between the divine presence and jewelry, particularly in Judaism. In this blog post, we will explore the age-old custom where a husband buys jewelry for his wife as a symbol of love and commitment.

Symbol of Love and Commitment

In Judaism, the act of a husband buying jewelry for his wife is deeply rooted in tradition. It is a gesture that goes beyond material value; it is a symbol of love, commitment, and respect. The jewelry serves as a tangible reminder of the bond between husband and wife, reflecting the beauty and preciousness of their relationship. It is also said that G-d provided Manna to the children of Israel in the wilderness he provided women with jewelry.

Connection to the Divine

Some believe that the act of giving jewelry in Judaism is also connected to the divine presence. The beauty and craftsmanship of the jewelry are seen as reflections of the beauty and creativity of the divine. 

The logic fits even better when we get into the Kabbalah behind it. The Shelah Hakadosh (Rabbi Yeshaya Horowitz) writes that when a man buys his wife fine clothes and jewelry, he should have in mind that he is beautifying the Divine Presence, represented in this world by none other than his wife.
