This blessing for physicians is attributed to Maimonides, one of the most influential Jewish philosophers of all time. Enveloped by delicate vines, the golden letters of this print shine beautifully against the rich blue background. This print is well-suited to either the home or the office. A pioneer in Jewish art, Mickie Caspi has been working in the Boston area for over thirty-five years and has gained a worldwide following. An ideal gift for physicians old and new.

- English translation reads: “O Benevolent G-d, Thou hast created the human being with infinite wisdom. Thou hast blessed Thine earth, Thy mountains and Thy rivers with healing substances that enable Thy children to alleviate their sufferings and to heal their illnesses. Thou hast chosen me to keep vigil over the life and well being of Thy creations. Purify me and fill my heart with love for my art and for Thy creations. Endow me with strength of mind and heart so that both may be always ready to serve all that need me, be they rich or poor, good or wicked, friend or foe. Let me never see in the sufferer anything else but a fellow human being in pain. Grant me perseverance to continually expand my knowledge, for wisdom is boundless and can extend infinitely to enrich the human mind with new discoveries. O Compassionate G-d, Thou hast chosen me to watch over the health of Thy creations. I now apply myself to my calling. Support and strengthen me in my task so that I may aid those in need.” -Prayer for the Physician, Maimonides
