The Sheep - From Perek Shira

     The small kosher animals include both goats and sheep, and their skin is sometimes used for making the soft straps that bind the tefillin to the arm and the forehead. In the High Holiday liturgy we say to God, "We are Your flock, and You are our Shepherd." Just as the shepherd must see that each goat or sheep has food and water, and does not get lost or attacked from outside the flock, so, too, are we dependent upon God's constant care for our wellbeing and survival. The Hebrew word for goat is "ayil" and the masculine name Eyal is derived from it. The feminine form is Yael, who was one of the heroines of the book of Judges. The Yiddish masculine name Shepsel means "sheep". This piece would be a welcome gift for anyone with any of those names.

The Small Kosher Animal says:
     "Who is like You among the mighty ones, God, who is like You, mighty in holiness, awesome in praise, worker of wonders."
     - Exodus 15:11

Perek Shira is the song that is sung every day by God's creations, each creation having its own song. Please see this category's section page for more of an explanation.
