It is tradition to wear a RED STRING BENDEL on your left wrist for protection in health and fortune.
Thin Red String Bendel -Some people swear by them.
According to ancient custom, negative energy is repelled when the Red String Bendel is worn on the left wrist. The left side is the receiving side of the soul. So they say. Actually since the bendels date back so far, there is much to be interpreted. There is no one red string. Any string can be taken to Rachel's tomb. The thread is wound around Rachel’s tomb 7 times to protect from the influences of the evil eye as chronicled by the ancient sages.
Red string is wound around the stone marker over Rachel's tomb several times, while reciting Hebrew prayers. Pictures show the red string being wrapped, often started by a Rabbi, around cloth [Actually started by someone called something else -more specific than Rabbi]. Note the string in picture just below second line of writing. Rabbi [or other holy person] recites prayer as string is wrapped seven times.
Long roll of red string being wrapped at Rachels Tomb. The long Rabbi [holy man] blessed string, is imported in the US, to be cut into bracelet size lengths. 12 inches for replacement for sterling chain. 8 inch for solo string. String is wool, cotton or poly. Even red leather bendels are sold. Some are 1mm. These may be inserted in sterling silver chain, cut to 12 inch. Larger 2mm is better for solo wear [meaning wearing without a chain]. Bendels are worn on the left hand as a symbolic request for spiritual and physical protection and blessings.
The point of the string is to believe, to have faith, live a better life.
For centuries, some Jews have tied a red string around their wrist for things such as pain relief, easy childbirth, and protection from unkind glances from others EVIL EYE. The Red String Bendel's special meaning is based on its connection to Rachel, one of the four Matriarchs of the Jewish people. Rachel is revered for her ability to overcome adversity and her sterling character.
