The 31-year-old assured bidders that he had lived a life full of Mitzvos (good deeds), and had never worshipped false gods and is still 98% vegan.

A Jewish man from New Jersey attempted to auction off place in heaven in eBay.

Ari Mandel posted the spot on the auction website on Tuesday morning, asserting that the winning bidder will receive two signed contracts - one that guaranteed Mandel’s “timeshare” in the skies and another that promised that Mandel will keep the spot open by staying free from sin, the New York Daily News reported.

The 31-year-old assured bidders that he had lived a life full of Mitzvos (good deeds), and had never worshipped false gods and is still 98% vegan.

In a few hours the biddings reached six figures after starting at 99 cents.

However, eBay struck down the post and its representative called Mandel to remind him that people aren’t allowed to sell intangible items.

But Mandel insisted that the auction was a harmless prank.
