Shema Yisrael (or Sh'ma Yisrael or just Shema)
"Hear, [O] Israel") are the first two words of a section of the Torah that is a centerpiece of the morning and eveningJewish prayer services
The first verse encapsulates the monotheistic essence of Judaism
"Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one," found in Deuteronomy 6:4
Observant Jews consider the Shema to be the most important part of the prayer service in Judaism, and its twice-daily recitation as a mitzvah (religious commandment).
The literal word meanings are roughly as follows:
Shema — listen, or hear & do
Yisrael — Israel, in the sense of the people or congregation of Israel
Adonai — often translated as "Lord"
Eloheinu — our God, the word "El" or "Eloh" signifying God and the plural possessive determiner suffix "-nu" or "-enu" signifying "our"
Echad — the Hebrew word for the number 1, which has the dual meaning "one" and "alone", its root is also "unique".
