An amulet is a magical charm or talisman to protect from harm the one who possesses it or wears it. Despite the strong biblical opposition to magic and divination, amulets were tolerated by the talmudic rabbis. The belief in amulets persisted widely among Jews until, along with similar superstitious practices, it was attacked by the Haskalah and Reform movements in the 18th century. To this day the belief is still held in some circles, where amulets are worn as a protection against the evil eye and are hung around the room of a woman in childbirth to protect her against the machinations of Lilith. The inscriptions on amulets in ancient times would appear to have been various scriptural passages that spoke of healing or protection.
