The scarlet red bracelet worn by celebrities is a Kabbalistic/Judaic symbol to ward off evil or the evil eye…so they say. In Talmudic Judaism they took Leviticus 16:9 to another level and put a red string on the horns of the scape goat that was sent into the wilderness that was then pushed off of a cliff. The second goat, they tied the red string around the neck of the goat. This was there sacrifice.
“According to the Talmud, the red string was used in the scapegoat ritual of Yom Kippur in the wilderness. During this rite, the High Priest would place his hands upon the scapegoat, confess the sins of Israel, and ask for atonement. He would then tie a red string between the horns of the scapegoat and another piece around the neck of a second goat to indicate where it should be slaughtered.
The second goat was then killed as a sin offering and the scapegoat was sent into the wilderness. Once there, the person in charge of the scapegoat would tie a rock to the red thread on the scapegoat and shove the animal off a cliff (Yoma 4:2, 6:8).
There are many different reasons for wearing a red string, and the origins of these tend to be connected to the various instances of protection and repentance evident in the aforementioned occurrences in the Torah.
As such, the reasons in the Jewish and non-Jewish world (see Other Cultures below) tend to revolve around protection, whether it’s protecting people, animals, or property against sickness, the evil eye (ayin hara), or other negative energy or occurrences.
Here are some of the classic “hows” and “whys” for people wearing the crimson thread:
Tying a red string to your left wrist wards off bad luck (ayin hara, or the evil eye).
Wear a red string until it naturally wears away and falls off and you will subsequently meet the person you’re meant to marry.
If pregnant or trying to get pregnant, wear a red string around your wrist or waist to ward off the evil eye.
If you visit Israel or, more specifically, the tomb of Rachel in Bethlehem, many of those selling red strings claim to have wrapped the threads around Rachel’s tomb seven times. The purpose of this supposed act is to provide the wearer of the string with characteristics of Rachel, including compassion and generosity.
THE RABBIS ON THE RED STRING
The Debreczyner Rav, or Be’er Moshe 8:36, wrote about his childhood where he remembered seeing pious individuals wearing red strings, although he could find no written source for the practice. Ultimately, he indicates that it is an accepted practice to ward off the evil eye and Minhag Yisroel Torah Yoreh Deah 179 concurs.
In the Tosefta, Shabbat 7, there is a discussion about the practice of tying a red string on something or tying a string around something red. This specific chapter in the Tosefta actually deals with practices that are forbidden because they are considered darchei Emori, or practices of the Emorites. More broadly, the Tosefta is discussing idolatrous practices.
Ultimately, the Tosefta concludes that the tying of a red string is a prohibited pagan practice and Radak Yeshayahu 41 follows suit.” (https://www.thoughtco.com/the-red-thread-of-judaism-2076685)
Now ironically these idiots wear this to let the world know who they follow and like I mentioned before, to supposedly ward off evil. It’s not gong to work for them though. What’s funny is that in Judaism this was to mark the sinful goat of sacrifice. They are marking themselves to follow the beast. Notice they put it on their left hand. Jesus told us the goats are at His left and the sheep are at His right.
Now you tell me, what does this really symbolize?
