WIKIPEDIA: El Shaddai or just Shaddai is one of the names of the God of Israel. El Shaddai is conventionally translated as God Almighty but the construction of the phrase fits the pattern of the divine appellations in the Ancient Near East and as such can convey various types of semantic relations between these two words: El of a place known as Shaddai, El possessing the quality of shaddai or El who is also known as Shaddai - exactly as is the case with the names like "El Olam", "El Elyon" or "El Betel". Moreover, while the translation of El as "God" or "Lord" in the Ugaritic/Canaanite language is straightforward, the literal meaning of Shaddai is the subject of debate.
The name 'Shaddai" often appears on the devices such as amulets or dedicatory plaques. More importantly, however, it is associated with the traditional Jewish customs which could be understood as apotropaic: male circumcision, mezuzah and tefillin. the connections of the first one with the name Shaddai are twofold. According to the biblical chronology it is El Shaddai who ordains the custom of circumcision in Genesis 17:1 and, as is apparent in midrash Tanhuma Tzav 14 the brit milah itself is the inscription of the part of the name on the body.
