E'li E'li Pendant: Chanah Senesh was born in Hungary in 1921. Her father Bella Senesh was an author. At age eighteen she emigrated to Palestine where she studied agriculture. Later she joined the kibbutz Sedot Yam Caesarea. At this time she wrote poems and also joined the underground movement in Palestine. During WW II in January of 1944 she was sent to Yugoslavia and continued on to her native Hungary. She was soon captured by the Nazis due to an informer. Chanah Senesh was held in prison where she was interrogated and tortured by the Nazis. She was sentenced to death in November 1944 and faced a firing squad without a blindfold and with her head held high. Her remains were brought to Israel in 1950 where she was buried with full state honors in the national cemetery on Mt. Herzel.
This pendant was one of her poems: "A walk to Caesarea" better known as "Eli Eli". The translation is: "O Lord, my G-d. I pray that these things never end: The sand and the sea, the rush of the waters, the crash (thunder) of the heavens, the prayer of the heart".
