Baraka is an Indo-European word with the connotations of "blessings". In the ancient Aramaic
(the street language in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus
and the language that he himself spoke)
BARAKA had a number of meanings
whose association with one another portrays the essence of the word. It meant 'blessings'
(the sort gained by the woman when she touched the hem of Jesus);
it meant "wind" and "breath".
A root word of BARAKA is "ruh", which means "peace".
This is the origins of the name, Ruth.
