Yes. I won a chair type of thing but it was for little kids and that wasn’t quite the impression I got when I put in for it.

I won a megillah (which I still use) and a silver case (which I never used and sits in my house gathering dust).
Another time I won a sheitel for my wife.

Yes. KA”H a few times. Then I replace the tzedaka money I used to buy the tickets and give it back to tzedaka. I am still way ahead. Everyone comes out a winner. The organization I originally gave to. I won something worth more than the money I gave and then the next tzedaka that benefits from the money I just regave!
May we all be winners!February 16, 2011 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm #741062Feif UnParticipant
