Gird on a Wire

AFP reports,

Hundreds of young Israeli women hoping to find themselves a husband have been placing their underwear on the tomb of a venerated rabbi in the hopes that their marriage prayers will be answered.
Around 400 pairs of knickers and bras have been collected from the grilles of the tomb’s window or on the branches of nearby trees by the authorities charged with preserving the final resting place of Rabbi Yenothan Ben Uziel in the Amuka region of northern Israel, the Maariv daily reported on Sunday.
According to Jewish tradition, anyone who is unmarried will meet their soulmate and marry within a year if they visit his tomb.
However Rabbi Israel Deri, in charge of protecting holy sites in the north, told the paper that the women’s prayers would go unanswered.
“Having consulted with the chief rabbis, I can say with certainty that not only are these women guilty of a profanity but they will also never gain benediction,” he said.

What freakin’ rabbi uses the word benediction?!

  1. Personally, I dig broads who are guilty of a little profanity and in search of some benediction.
    My friend calls the Breaslev Chassidim the “Breastlover Chassidim”. If Rabbi Yenothan Ben Uziel were the forefather of those guys then this story would make perfect sense.
