Jerusalem Compass

If you are caught short and find yourself without a shul to daven in, you'll know how difficult it can be to work out which way to face in order to pray towards Jerusalem.

Well, now, the Jerusalem Compass will be able to guide you in the right direction.

There's nothing electronic about this device, it's a compass that has been specifically geared to enable people to work out the correct direction for Jerusalem.

The compass was designed by an orthodox Jew who goes by the name of Moshe and came about after years of research.

In fact, it's so good according to reports, that even some shuls could do with it as their arks are not always facing in the correct direction.

"People I've shown it to are very enthusiastic," Moshe told the Jerusalem Post. "But they are shocked when they find they have been praying for years facing the wrong direction. Those who have the compass now face the correct position to pray even when the aron kodesh is in the wrong place."

Coming in at $25 or $37 if you want one engraved with your initials, it's the perfect gift for anyone Jewish, frummers will love and those who are not religious will appreciate its style.

And of course, if you are building a shul, it will enable you to make sure the ark is facing towards Jerusalem.
