That's a Hebrew word in case you didn't know.
The word Shechem as a noun literally means shoulder. There was in ancient times a city called Shechem. It is the place that God told Abram that he would give him all of the land before him and that he would make his descendants as numerous as the stars. Later on Joshua, the successor of Moses, brought the people back to Shechem to serve as a reminder to them to not forget where they come from.
It’s kind of a crazy story how this word became a regular part of my vocabulary. I’ll tell more about that elsewhere. Suffice it say for now that Shechem to me means to remember where you came from.
