Raise your Cup of Salvation
Working on a hot tip from A Simple Jew I came across this Becher for sale. It's not just any Kiddush Cup, you see, it's a "Kaballah Becher" based on the writings of the Rashash zt"l. I know very little about the Segulos of Kaballah and whether or not laymen like myself can actually get them to work, but this seems a little much. People who bought these Bechers supposedly swear that it helps for everything from an easy childbirth to preventing kids from bedwetting. All you need to do is overpay for a silver cup and all your problems are solved? I once spoke to a guy who had this Kolel of a group of men in Israel who learned Kaballah half a day and produced these Bechers the other half. Supposedly they have very lofty Kavanos in mind while inscribing these cups, and produce them by hand one cup at a time. He was quite happy that there was such a market, and that people will pay anything if they think that their problems could be solved.
From the ad: The gilt (gold washed) interior of the cup is designed based on the writings of the 17th century Kabbalist - Rashash. It is engraved with sixty-four different words that are derived from the letters of the names of the four rivers that flowed through the Garden of Eden. One who drinks from this cup, according to Kabbalistic teachings, is granted the secrets and blessings of healing from any sicknesses, mental or physical, and infertility.
According to Kabbalistic tradition, King Solomon extracted these secrets from the Garden of Eden.
