Rochel Imaynu, Rachel the biblical matriarch, beloved wife of Yaakov Avinu (Jacob our forefather), has her yaretzheit next week on the 11th of Cheshvon (next Thursday the evening of Oct. 28). In honor of this upcoming occasion, my wife, daughter, son and I traveled to Kever Rochel last night to perform the segulah of the red bendel (red string), for charity (an offer for you at the end of this article)...
We entered the well known Tomb of Rachel in Bet Lechem to wrap the holy kever 7 times with red string (while reciting certain pesukim)...
This is a bit tricky, as the men's and women's sections are walled off from each other, and of course there's other worshipers there as well.
So here's the deal. Our son's yeshiva needs some help!
Donate _any_ tax deductible amount and we'll send you 1 foot / 30cm of authentic red string wrapped around Kever Rochel.
Need more than 1 foot (1 foot of string is good for 1 person to wear as a bracelet)? Just donate a little more and let us know how much you need.
- If you don't like Paypal, you can donate via check here. Then let us know and we'll send it out.
- All monies raised to be directed to Yeshiva Nishmat Shlomo in Tzfat, Israel, tax deductible Nishmat Shlomo, Inc. IRS TAX ID#22-3804793.
May the mitzvah of charity open for you many doors of blessing, and the blessings of the segulah of the red strings for health, safety, children, and success.
