The blessing beneath a new house


Good day Rabbi,
Does exist the Jewish tradition or requirement to bury a bottled text beneath a new house for good auspice? Does “Heaven Pina or Even Pina” ring your bell?
If affirmative, what is its correct name and procedure?
Thanks allot,


When a person starts building a new house or building some people make a ceremony called “hanachat even hapina” (laying of the cornerstone). I am not aware of such a tradition, however there are a number of stories about very pious people who prayed at the time of the ceremony that the building that was being built should be a place that should be full of good deeds torah and service of G-d.

May you have much success and good fortune in your new home.
