Did You Know? The use of amulets dates from ancient times and continues to this day. Amulets were intended to protect the wearer, his family, and his possessions from natural disasters, spells, and the evil eye. Some were thought to bear healing properties or aid fertility; others protected the wearer on his travels, conferred blessings and good fortune, or elicited the good will and love of others. The magical power attributed to Jewish amulets stems from the versions of God’s name or Biblical verses inscribed on them. For extra protection, the name of the wearer was sometimes added.SHOW MORE
