  Child's amulet, Ukraine, 19th century

© Vladimir Muzychenko, Photographer: Muzychenko, Vladimir, 9.2019

The lead child's amulet was found in Volodymyr Volynskyi in 2019.

In the centre of the amulet is a circle that has the letter ה in the middle standing for "the Lord". Around the circle there is a Hebrew inscription:

זה הילד יגדל לתורה / לחופה ומ"ט (מעשים טובים).

May this child rise to Torah/ Huppah and to good deeds.

 

The other side of the amulet is decorated with two fish. The break between the fish once had a hole for the chain. This side has an inscription and it reads:

י'ר'מ'ה'א'ו'א' [=יהיה רצון מלפניך ה' אלהינו ואלהי אבותינו] 

שתציל תנוקת של

עמך ישראל [שלא]

תפול אסכרה ב[פיהם]

ותגדלם לתורתך ותגן

עליהם ברחמיך 

אמן

[Magical formula]

Save children of

the Jewish people [from]

diphtheria [in thier mouths]

and raise them to Torah

and protect them with Your mercy (based on the verse from Likutei Tfilot, part 1, Prayer 28)

Amen
