ROITEH BENDEL- RED STRING

             ROITEH BENDEL- RED STRING

Some who claim to be Kabbalists believe that by placing a red string around your wrist you will be protected against עין הרע. You will even be blessed with health,wealth, children ,beautiful house and a fancy new car. This works best if the string  was used in the past to surround the מצבה of Kever Rochel.

The practice of red string goes back to the times of the
תנאים.  The Tosefta (Shabbos 7: 1)  enumerates all the
practices that are forbidden because of דרכי אמורי.
one of them is placing a red string on the finger.

The קיצור סמ"ג writes if there will be a time,[ ch”v]
when putting on תפילין will be outlawed.  Then
one shall tie a red string on his hand to remind him about the דם ברית.

This suggestion sounds strange and ridiculous.
One shouldn’t be surprised finding such silly and absurd statements In the קיצור סמ"ג. 

The actual Mechaber of this Sefer was not ר' משה מקוצי as many believe. It was none other but a Goyishe priest, an anti semite,named Sebastian Munster  ימ"ש . Sebastian was a student of ר' אליהו בחור who taught him לשון הקודש.
