Thou Shalt Not Sell the Wailing Wall on Ebay

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, the Kotel Rabbi, filed a police complaint Monday following a public auction on Ebay of stones from the Wailing Wall. The stones were being offered as amulets of blessings, but Rabbi Rabinowitz claims this is against the law.

The Kotel Rabbi also approached Ebay’s operators requesting them to halt the auction. He also warned that stones that were stolen from the Wall would bring a curse, not a blessing, on those who purchase them.
