HEAR, O’ ISRAEL! Sh’ema Yisra’el is the most important commandment in the Scriptures. In the Bible, Deuteronomy 6:4 it says: "Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!”. According to Judaism, this is a declaration of faith in one God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The prayer should be recited twice a day. According to Christianity, Yeshua (Jesus) was asked to name the most important commandments. As a Jew he replied that the two most important ones are: “Hear, O’ Israel” and “Love Your Neighbor as Yourself” (Mark 12:28 and Mathew 22:34).
