    wow this is better than any brand name!

  2. Joseph says:

    This is a re-auction after it previously failed to sell at this asking price.

  3. frumyechiel says:

    by the way it can be even more then $350,000 becouse that is only the starting bid,but any way i doubt that there will be any one who will buy the rebbe,s eyeglasses for even $350,000 grand.
    p.s. there is still over 3 days for this bid to end, good luck to the winner of this bid and as long as he has the glasses in his possesion, which he should have for ever and ever if he does buy it may he and family merit the rebbe,s zatzal blessing forever and ever!!!

  4. Lawman says:

    Thanks, YW Editor, for the picture of the Rebbe here.

    I now have a framed 4×6 of this picture in my study of the Rebbe, zt”l.

  5. nabil says:

    why would i want the rebbes glasses? whats the segula its not even my prescription. if you would sell the rebbes seforim that would be a different story…

    p.s.- if these glasses are not being fought over than i dont want it

  6. shhhh says:

    I was gonna go for it but the $125 shipping just kills the deal

  7. yid613 says:

    This seems weird to me!

  8. Rav Mechel says:

    The price seems a little excessive to me. Does the money go to charity or is this someone’s business?

  9. Yatzmich says:

    And what is exactly the segulah of the seforim?

  10. gabs911 says:

    BUY THE BOOK! Better and cheaper!!!

  11. thinkingclearly says:

    If this guy will sell it for 350k then he himslf obviously doesn’t think they are worth that or he would keep it.

  12. TMIMUS says:

    Can these eyeglasses be the Rebbe’s?

    Would the Rebbe have given them to anyone who would sell them anywhere, never mind Ebay? Not likely. These are either fakes OR stolen or lost, and belong with the family.

  13. baki says:

    It is interesting how this is right above an article about financial difficulties.

  14. torahyid says:

    What a great deal? only $350,000. I would by it in a minute , but theres one problem, I dont like the style . If u fix that there mine without a minutes hesitation. One of the greatest items in a SMART Jews home. What a find????????????????????????????????/. some smart guy will grab it. Signed Putsdu

  15. Ploni Almony says:

    Someone once asked the Satmar Rov zatzal if he could have one of the Rebbe’s pairs of pants. The Rebbe responded, “What do you think, these are going to protect you?,when you get up there, they’re going to pull them down, and SHMEISS!”

  16. thevoos says:

    The raaya that is a hoak is that, besides asking a chazerisha price of $350000!, the guy wants $125 for shipping!

  17. shelly says:

    Spending $350,000 on a pair of glasses, not even your prescription, …. that’s a bit of money….

    I Hope this money will go to tzedaka… if anyone bids on it.

    was that comment a joke or what??? LOL, nobody is buying it to wear, its supposed to be a zechus to be in possession of the Rebbe’s glasses.

    I remember a case where a tzaddik was niftar and when they brought his tallis to the Chevra Kaddisha, one of the people who were going to do the Tahara, took the talis, RIPPED off the Atoroh and said ‘Dort brochn min dus nisht’ ( there its not needed)

  20. MidasHarachamim says:

    It says that the Rebbe ZT”L wore them for two decades, but the prescription is from 1994.

  21. Flatbush Bubby says:

    Why not sell the Rebbe’s glasses for $350,000.00? They sell all types of meshugassen on eBay. Why not the Rebbe’s glasses?

  22. anon. 6.12.07 says:

    I dont think its appropriate to see the rebbes glasses on eBay. However the story of the Pnei Yeshuos glasses is well known, and I would not discount the value of the zechus of owning them – as long as they are obtained in an appropriate manner…

  23. joshy says:

    its off eBay sorry to all those interested.

  24. classact says:

    People have the right to ask for any amount that the market is willing to pay. thats the country we live in.
    The bigger question here is , how do we know taht these are really his?

  25. freilach says:

    i can”t get over this doesent his children want to hold on to such a precious item something that their father wore for so many years

  26. ploiderer1 says:

    It’s not worth a penny over $349,000.00

  27. rabeinu46 says:

    I wonder what the rebbi would say about that
    hashem yirachem

  28. hml says:

    Darn!! And I raided my piggy bank & counted out $348,976.89 in pennies. I was nearly there, & now it’s OFF??? What a shanda!

  29. barry zee says:

    i just got word the manufacturer from China just made a recall on all these type of glasses.Are you
    sure it was on e-bay USA and not some third world country

  30. sayitlikeitis says:

    ridiculous, who cares about the glasses? Donate them to some visual gemach and goodbye.

  31. RagachoversAssistant says:

    I will tell you why anyone would pay that kind of money for a pair of glasses of a Tzadik.

    I know of a reliable story which took in Europe. The holy “Pnei Yehosha’s” glasses were accidentally found by a person who had lost his vision. When that person put on the “Pnei Yehosha’s” glasses his vision was restored.

    This story was told and retold in Europe!!

  32. TMIMUS says:

    Has s/o asked the Seller how he/she got them?

  33. natshayech says:

    Buy now ! supplies are limited.

  34. a gutter yid says:

    The roov was a tzaddik yesoid oilam. With these glasses he looked at everybody with an Ayin Tova. They belong to the family as a yerisha and anyone who sells them is, needless to say, taking something that they shouldn’t. If the family is selling them to raise $$$ for the mosdos, they would do it in a bakovodiker manner. This is not.

  35. heshyk says:

    i dont understand first we’re not allowed to go on the internet now the only way to find CHEAP glasses is on the web
