    This is not a moose! This is the Hebrew word Chai meaning life!

    There are no Moose in the Dinatah[scared Navajo[Dinah] land marked by the the “Four Sacred Mountains”].
    It was often mistaken for the “Spider Woman Cross” that is often mistaken for a swasstika.
    Ny father loved the Dinah. He was sure they were the 10 lost tribes of Israel and always greeted them with Shalom.

    Anyway, as far as buying/saving on eBay goes:

    If you have a question about an item, go to another of the seller’s listings and ask the question from there. This will add a bit of work for the seller, if they want to add your question and their answer to the item description page. Maybe other interested buyers will not bother to ask a question, instead just continuing to look for a similar item that already has the question answered in the item description.

    If you see an item that you want listed in auction format, send the seller a message asking if they will accept $x to end the auction early and sell the item to you. If that doesn’t work, use a sniping service such as Bidball.com to bid for you. It’ll bid in the last few seconds, helping to save $ and avoid shill bidding.

    If there is a particular item that you want that is relatively rare on eBay or goes fast when one is listed, use ebuyersedge.com to set up a saved eBay search for it. You’d get an e-mail whenever a match is listed. You can use the price, category, exclude word, etc. filters to narrow down the results that you get in the e-mails. Excellent for “Buy It Now”s priced right.

    If the item that you’re looking for is difficult to spell, try a misspelling search site like Typojoe.com to find some deals with items that have main keywords misspelled in the title. Other interested buyers may never see them.

  • Did the person who purchased the pendant return the item?

    If you think this is bad you should go onto Pinterest and do a search on Jewish and look at the pins – it’s amazing and appalling
