    Here’s a story that just happened to me (today, about half an hour ago) that I hope will inspire some people before Rosh Hashonah.

    I live in Yerushalayim, and for the last couple of days we’ve had the problem of a blocked kitchen sink. I tried fixing it, plunging it, unscrewing the drain and sticking things down there, pouring so-called drain unclogger down there – to no avail. So tonight it got so difficult to deal with in light of Yom Tov preparations, we called a plumber – he said tomorrow (Erev Yom Tov) it’ll cost between 350-400 shekel to unclog. Oh boy. Another expense for Yom Tov…. So a little later in the evening, actually around 2 am after I came home from midnight Slichos, I called Va’a Harabonim (for those who don’t know, one of the biggest tzedakos in Yerushalayim) and made a donation before Yom Tov. 5 minutes later I was in the kitchen, and the sink was half full of dirty water. I picked up the plunger again, figuring why not give it a try, and after half a dozen times…..Lo and behold! It emptied out!

    Call it coincidence if you want. I call it the power of Tzedokah and Hashgocha Protis.


    wow! thanks for sharing. it should not be the only reason for giving tzedakah but these stories help

    usa-tralian, what a wonderful story. It reminds of the stories told by Rabbonim to make a point when teaching. However, I am very happy that I am not your plumber, but this event will give you some extra assets to donate to tzedaka. Co-incidentally, yesterday while walking across a parking lot to go to a Judaica store, I found a coin on the ground. As soon as I entered the shop I walked to the area near the cashier and dropped the coin into a tzedaka box. I know that Hashem did not mean for me to keep the money – even though it was a small amount.
