Hesed is an ancient word meaning “loving kindness." It captures a cluster of qualities: love, mercy, grace and kindness—all of the attributes so often used to describe God.
Hesed is what moves someone to act solely for the benefit of another.
It is loyal love—sacrificial and kind.
Think of the clustered diamonds surrounding the mirror as every good and precious quality we seek to nurture in ourselves so we can be a loving kindness to the world.
