Kitzur Sh'lah teaches that it is a source of merit to recite a Torah verse that symbolizes one's name.  The verse should either contain the person's name or else begin and end with the first and last letters of the name. 


Rabbi Haselah HaKodsoh (1534-1572) states that for every Hebrew name, there is a corresponding sentence in the Bible.  Most sentences come from the Psalms.  Legend says that when a person dies and goes to Heaven, he will be asked different questions, however, he will not remember much.  We say our corresponding verse in Heaven to help us remember our name.  Throughout Tanach, a name represents a person's true essence.  So, in remembering our names, we also remember who we are. 


Eli will research your name, find your corresponding verse, and transcribe it in Hebrew on specially processed parchment using quill and pen.  Your Hebrew name will be written over the sentence in either Hebrew or English.  Finished size depends on the verse but is approximately 4" by 12".

Or you can have Eli scribe only your name in Hebrew onto parchment.
