Unholy undies adorn rabbi's tomb

Mississippi Fred MacDowell has the strange story of upstanding Jewish women behaving like smitten rock fans:
Hundreds of young Israeli women looking for husbands have been placing their underwear on the tomb of a venerated rabbi in the hopes that their marriage prayers will be answered.
And later, after they are married, they will be showing their questionably stained underwear to other Rabbis, in the hopes that their prayers to put off having sex for a few days will be answered.
