As a rational religion, Judaism cannot explain why bad things happen to good people. For centuries Jews blamed demons, evil spirits, and of course, the evil eye for their bad fortune. They created or copied coping mechanisms designed to ward off bad luck and protect them from evil. We will examine the many minhagim (customs) that resulted from these beliefs and are now an important part of our lives.
