The Moses amulet contains a mystical code with wondrous abilities to bring about success, a change of destiny and the fulfillment of one’s wishes. The amulet symbolizes the familiar tales of the parting of the Red Sea, Moses drawing water from the rock by striking it with his rod and God appearing before Moses in the Burning Bush.
According to tradition, the rod’s letter-combination descended from Heaven and was given to Noah and the Three Fathers – Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – next to Joseph and finally, to Moses.
“And Moses took the rod of God in his hand” (Exodus, chapter 4, verse 20).
The word Rock in Hebrew – Sela, סלע is comprised of the Hebrew letters Samech, Lamed and Ayin. Upon striking the rock twice, the layers fell and water – Mayim in Hebrew (comprised of the Hebrew letters Mem, Yud, Mm – מימ) – came forth.
The Hallel prayer – a recitation from Psalms used for praise and thanksgiving by the Israelites to God, appears on the other side of the amulet.
“The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him” (Exodus, chapter 15, verse 2)
