A very credible organization which sends out daily halacha is now covering halachos involved with lighting Shabbos candles.
I want to share that mentioned in today’s halacha, it states for women who experience difficult labor when giving birth and for women who have not yet had children, they should recite the Haftarah of the first day of Rosh Hashana (which details the story of Chana’s childlessness and ultimate giving birth to Shmuel HaNavi) each Friday evening after lighting Shabbos candles. It is stated to work best when the woman understands what she is saying with meaning, and not simply reading the words.
Hatzlacha to anyone who many want to employ this segula!January 11, 2012 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm #843122
(((((feedback))))) Is this on?January 11, 2012 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #843123BaalHaboozeParticipant
I have heard of the powerful segula to be oleh for this Haftora on Rosh Hashana, being an incredibly auspicious time when Hashem hears the tefillos of childless couples. I have also heard of davening when lighting Shabbos candles. But I have never heard of the segula of reciting the Rosh Hashana Haftora when lighting Shabbos candles. Interesting. Can you provide us with a source please. Thanks BTGuy for sharing.January 11, 2012 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #843124cleverjewishpunMember
Most people with a decent sized IQ dont really care for magic tricks.January 11, 2012 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #843125umMember
Yes i have heard of this… there are the newer “hadlokas naros techinos” that have it in them!January 11, 2012 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm #843126
There are soooo many so called segulos out there it has hard to differentiate between the legitimate ones and the fraudulent ones.
An unnamed email quoting a segula without a source doesnt prompt much serious thought.January 11, 2012 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #843127
Hi BallHabooze and yungerman1.
I was not sure if I could post where I got it from, but it comes from a site accepted and advertised in a lot of the Lakewood shops. Personally, I think it is an easy and highly valuable learning tool that only takes a minute or so to read.
It is the lesson for today, January 11th.
The recommendation seems to be supported by Kitzur Shulchan Aruch.January 12, 2012 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #843128
BTGuy- Thank you.
I looked up that website and the source is Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 75:2.January 12, 2012 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #843129BaalHaboozeParticipant
Thank you, BTGuy.January 12, 2012 6:04 pm at 6:04 pm #843130MDGParticipant
If there is a difficult labor/birth. Say Yizkor. You can see that when they says Yizkot in shul the kids always run out 🙂January 12, 2012 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #843131aidel_maidelParticipant
seems your IQ isnt big enough cuz its in the kitzur- last time i checked its not a book of magic.January 12, 2012 6:34 pm at 6:34 pm #843132blinkyParticipant
Can I say it for someone? Or does the person have to say it? Because i know someone in this situation and i would feel more comfortable saying it for her privately instead of telling her about it.January 12, 2012 6:42 pm at 6:42 pm #843133
Hi yungerman1 and BaalHabooze.
You are welcome. Also, thank you for looking up those specifics yungerman1.
I can understand clever’s reaction since I know there have been threads on segulas before and some of them seem to go way out and may have roots in something far less substantial than the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch.
I figured it is such an important issue for so many people, that once I read it, and saw it’s source, I could not just keep it to myself, and this seemed like a good place to share it.
Like I said..it “seemed” like a good place to share it. lol Just kidding!
I dont know if it can be said on behalf of someone else. I would ask since there are other things we certainly can daven for on other’s behalf, even formally like in the Shemona Esrei. But if it’s strength lies in the fact the individual needs to read it with kavana, then maybe there is a way they can become made aware of this.
Hatzlacha times a million to anyone who uses this segula!January 12, 2012 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #843134anonymrsParticipant
is it something that should be said only in the 9th month, or should it be said throughout pregnancy?January 12, 2012 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #843135
I cannot answer your question, but want to comment on what a clever name you made for posting.

anonymrs- The KSH says pretty much verbatim what BTGuy posted above. The segula is for childless women as well. He does not say when in the pregnancy it can be said.January 12, 2012 11:05 pm at 11:05 pm #843137KeenObserverMember
One excellent segula which I’ve heard is to make sure to live in the 20th or 21st century.January 12, 2012 11:59 pm at 11:59 pm #843138WIYMember
Another koifer?January 13, 2012 12:40 am at 12:40 am #843139KeenObserverMember
Are you saying it’s a bad segula? Who’s the koifer now?January 13, 2012 2:57 am at 2:57 am #843140Avi KParticipant
Rav Aviner said that the segulot for parnassa work for those who sell them. The segula for childbirth can be found at Machon Puah (which has an English-speaker division).January 13, 2012 4:47 am at 4:47 am #843141WIYMember
It seemed from your comment that you were mocking the kitzur shulchon aruch hence my sharp comment. If I am wrong I take back my comment but would like to know what you did mean.January 13, 2012 4:48 am at 4:48 am #843142sam4321Participant
There is a gemara in shabbas (66) which brings down a segula.January 13, 2012 6:44 am at 6:44 am #843143NechomahParticipant
My husband would ask for pesicha during my 9th month. A ruby is also supposed to be a segula to be worn from that point on.January 13, 2012 12:23 pm at 12:23 pm #843144Avi KParticipant
Sam, to be more exact it is in Shabbat 66b. Rabbi Scroll (his friends call him Art) says in the name of the Rashba (Teshuvot 1:413) that a certain action had to be performed on the stone. However, he does not say what that action was. In could be that there was some science known to them that is not known to us. It could also be that it had a placebo effect.January 13, 2012 2:27 pm at 2:27 pm #843145HaLeiViParticipant
So for us it won’t work, since we don’t know what special action was done, hence ruining the plecebo effect. Hmm.January 13, 2012 4:06 pm at 4:06 pm #843146
lol @ Avi K …:”the segula for parnassa works for those who sell them…”
Just a footnote, Avi, and this is not directed to you, but I know there is a lot of rolling of the eyes when it comes to segulas, but I am thinking this one is a cut above the others, if not more so, due to it’s source.January 13, 2012 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm #843147popa_bar_abbaParticipant
I am usually very skeptical of using segulos, but I kind of like this one. See http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/my-segula-didnt-work
See, the point of this segula is to read the parsha of chana, who davened for children and was granted children. Presumably, the point is that then you will also be motivated to daven for children.
