Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
What did Avraham wear on his neck and why?
וַיֵּ֣לֶךְ אַבְרָ֗ם כַּאֲשֶׁ֨ר דִּבֶּ֤ר אֵלָיו֙ ה' וַיֵּ֥לֶךְ אִתּ֖וֹ ל֑וֹט וְאַבְרָ֗ם בֶּן־חָמֵ֤שׁ שָׁנִים֙ וְשִׁבְעִ֣ים שָׁנָ֔ה בְּצֵאת֖וֹ מֵחָרָֽן׃
Abram went forth as the LORD had commanded him, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he left Haran.
Avraham wore a precious stone around his neck.
Any sick person who would gaze at it would be miraculously healed.
(Baba Batra 16b, Toledot Yitzchak. Cf. Ramban)
