    Tums; It is not an Acronym, but a WORD. A definition. It’s in the Torah. It is translated as A “Wonderful Sign”. (Synonymous with “OS”) ??? ?? ????. Not necessarily in a Positive sense. But this term is currently used to describe a “Promise” or “Blessing” come true. Mainly, (Anecdotally) by Chassidic Rebbes. In the Sephardic, or Yemenite world, there is the equivalent ????”?, ????? ??????. The Sephardic (Authentic) Mekubalim are so defined.

    In Chumash it means any supernatural occurrence. I have no idea what the colloquial usage is.
