Biblical history of wearing a string.

When wearing The Red String on our left wrist, we can receive a vital connection to the protective energies surrounding the tomb of Rachel.

Rachel the Matriarch represents the aspect of protection in the physical realm. Her greatest desire and purpose in life was to protect and defend all of her children from evil. That is why she evokes the element of protection from the universe.

The idea behind this practice is that Rachel is accepted as the ultimate mother figure who protects her children from the odds. By tying this thread, it is perceived that she is protecting all her children from the evil. She was diligent in her prayers, and hence consequently, she gave birth to two boys.

A scarlet thread, tied about the wrist, is mentioned in Genesis 38. Tamar becomes pregnant by her father-in-law, Judah, and gives birth to twin boys.

There is a fleeting mention in the Talmud about the practice of tying a bundle of herbs or gems and wearing them in order to ward off the “evil eye.” This comment is an offhand remark concerning laws of Sabbath observance.

What is the ‘Evil Eye’ ?

The “evil eye” is mentioned in the Talmud and has practical ramifications in Jewish law. For instance, one is not permitted to stand and stare at his friend’s field that is in full bloom, so as not to plague it with an “evil eye” (Baba Basra 2b). The “evil eye” is best described as a situation where “one conspicuously stands out, and there arouses people’s jealousy and discomfort.”
