    “anyone who completes Sefer Tehilim between the 1st and 2nd Megilla lainings, will be helped within the year.”

    The writer said he was helped, as were several others he knows of.

    Thank you so much! I will try to remember this year and let’s see if I am married by next year! Well I hope that Moshiach is here by then so everyone will be healed either way!

    I guess for those of us who lain again right away at night, we’re out of luck, as I don’t have time to finish Sefer Tehillim in between. 🙂

    The Yated has a similar letter about a childless woman. She had the segulah to say Tehilim after chatzos. She had a baby exactly a year later

    I’ve heard of saying the entire Tehillim on Purim as a Segula (which I’ve done), not necessarily between the two Megilla readings….

    If I am married by next year it will be your fault! 😉

    For those who don’t know. R’ Doniel Frisch ztz”l was the mechaber of the Matok Midvash peirush on the Zohar that is mekubel by all of klal yisroel.

    I met him in Rav Gamliel Rabinowitz’s (one of the roshei yeshivah of Shaarei Shomayim of Rav Shlomo Zalman) house. He told me Rav Frisch was his rebbe and they were learning together.

    He was niftar about 5 years ago or so and he was definitely one of the semi-hiddin tzaddikim of the past few decades.

    I can’t vouch for the statement since I never heard him say it and I don’t know where the Hamodia got it from. But I think it’s possible that he said. Many Rebbes made havtachos b’geder tzaddik gozer v’elokim mekayem. So he doesn’t need to be a kol yachol or a navi.

    ah gefehrliche misnaged!

    #858579

    AZ:

    Your point is understood but I disagree.

    ONLY the Kol Yachol has the power to be Maftiach “ANYONE” who does something.

    Except that this is exactly what tzaddik gozer means. Yehoshuah even countered Hashem’s gezeirah that the sun should move in its path by stopping nature itself.

    Tzaddik Gozer is not capable of guranteing with such a broad stroke

    What defines a broad stroke and what is thin?

    and no person of the stature of Tzaddik Gozer would be silly enought to make such a statement

    This is not a fact but an opinion based on the idea that a tzaddik can’t make such a gezeirah. If they can, you’re wrong.

    I think everyone knows that there is NO tzadik whose EVERY bracha came true.

    I don’t.

    ONLY the Ribbone Shel Olam, S’ehu Kol Yachol is capable of that.

    Or ‘only the RBS”O can be the source of a tzaddik’s bracha’.

    To think otherwise, is makeing a deity out of a human

    See above. Also there is ’emunas chachamim’.

    and may possibly border on transgressing one of the 13 ikarim of the Ramabam

    Which one?

    I think the question is whether or not you think that Hashem grants tzaddikim control over nature. If a tzaddik wanted, one erev Shabbos, to make a three year old cow to eat for Shabbos, could he? That is going against nature- a nes niglah. Why can’t he cause people to find their zivugim which is only a nes nistar?

    Poppa – how bad can it be, if its a call for saying gantz tehllim?

    Its not like I said, “all you need to do is send me $100, and I promise you’ll be helped” (although, if you want to send me $100, I’ll gladly accept it!)

    Saying gantz tehillim? How can you lose?

    Saying gantz tehillim? How can you lose?

    Very easily. I stay up late at night to say it and therefore miss davening in the morning. Maybe my time is better spent learning. Or doing other mitzvos.

    There are ALWAYS costs, and they must be evaluated accordingly.

    There is also an inyan of a Ruby which brings good luck. I gave my niece a Ruby ring before her younger sister’s wedding last May. She has just finished her Sheva Brochos! B”H, it worked for her. Maybe because it was mine (don’t call me I don’t have any more). But at any rate, Rubies are brought down to have special protective properties so they are beautiful and certainly can’t hurt.

    ” I was merely illustrating that you can, indeed, lose.”

    Perhaps. But I’m willing to bet that anyone who misses davening, was in all likelyhood not up for 3-5 hours saying tehillim.

    The gantz tehillim zuger may not make the netz minyan, 1st round of daytime megillah, but to cop out alltogether?

    Nah.

    #858594

    AZ:

    I think there is a difference between davening for something and being gozer something. I also think a tzaddik would know if he has the koach to be gozer something.

    I will try to find the source, but I have heard that if someone has emunah in a tzaddik’s words then even if the tzaddik was not on a madreigah to be po’el nissim the person will still get it from the zchus of his emunah.

    I’d imagine the Besh”t’s every bracha came true. Am I wrong?

    I don’t think what I am saying is avodah zarah bcause one of the characteristics of a tzaddik is that he is misbatel to HKB”H, his da’as is da’as Torah. So anything he desires is what Hashem wants.

    aries:

    There is also an inyan of a Ruby which brings good luck

    I have seen brought down in a number of places such as Rabbeinu Bechaye and Yalkut Me’am Loez that rubies are mesugal for pregancy ie. to get pregnant and to not have a miscarriage. But I haven’t seen anything about luck. Can you bring your source?

    always here:

    I think that not saying tehillim at night is only when the midas hadin is sholet. So for instance you can say it after chatzos all week long. Maybe on Purim there is no midas Hadin also, so you’d be able to say it all night long as well.

    Just wanted to pesonally thank bpt for starting this thread. I had read the letter in the hamodia too and put it somewhere in the back of my head, but when i saw it again here it reminded me about it and I did say it (and got other people to say it too).

    I don’t know about you but it definitely brought more meaning to my Purim.

    #858597

    Then Hallejuya…. such a peron would NEVER make a statement along the lines of

    Obviously, I’m going to say that such a tzaddik wouldn’t make such a statement unless he thought he could. In which case he would. If he did say it, then he thought he could. If he thought he could and he is a tzaddik, then he could.

    Do you think that Hashem isnt capable fo taking care of those “costs” for you? You say tehillim and let Hashem take care of the costs. Saying tehillim is never bad.

    That explains why most of your posts are so ridiculous; you’re too busy saying Tehillim to think about what you’re writing.

    I had a short stint with infertility, and a kind woman gave me some ruby powder to DRINK with a copy of the mekor- a page from R’ Bechaye where it says that one who drinks it will have a son. My husband said the lady should drink it herself as a z’chus for us, but I told my husband that with a name like tomim tihye, how could I ignore the words of R’ Bechaye? He consented, and I downed it without tasting it.

    Indeed, my son was born nine months later, and the woman kvells whenever she sees him.

    Wow tomim. I knew that there was an inyan to drink it but you are the first person I’ve ever heard to do it. I didn’t even know you can get it. There is a jewlery store in geulah (owned by a Jew of course) that gives away free uncut rubies (although you need to buy the chain to put it on).

    Just a quick update.

    So far, one person on my list got engaged, but for the critics out there, I know that’s not enough to prove anything.

    But I’m posting for a different reason. Little did I know, back on Purim, that my personal world was going to be rocked to the core just a few weeks down the road. And the tehilim would become my best friend.

    when faced with the crisis, I was sure glad that I had already made a “deposit” before needing to make a major withdrawl.

    So, while I am still hopefull for the other 6 singles (and all others that I do not know personally), I know of one person that benefitted from the “gantz tehilim” marathon.

    That person is me.

    A young woman was niftar in toronto a year (or two? – I’m not from toronto but recently heard it from someone who lives there) ago. The entire community davened, learned and did all sorts of mitzvos in her zchus so she should have a refua. She was niftar. A rav gave the people chizuk by telling them all the tefillos and zechusim are not for naught, they are accrued in shamayim and at the appropriate time (tbd by shamayim) they will be “put to use”. You never lose by doing a mitzvah, saying a tefilla or perek tehillim.

    BPT: Wishing you and all your family KOL TUV with an abundance of HAGEFEN Amen!

    I was told to say the whole sefer Tehillim on the night of Purim AFTER CHAZOT (and it does take approximately 3 hours!), with ONLY ONE BAKASHA. I did this a year and half ago, and my son met his beshert B’H in June and they married. BPT, Encourage each of your singles to do this also for themselves. It is a very big segula. They should also join Machsom Lefi, which has lists of people who need shidduchim hagunim and one takes upon themselves not to speak loshen harah for a set period (usually 2 hours, unless one takes upon themselves 12 midnight till 8 a.m.). The list concentrates on one particular name for the week and it is suggested to study 2 halachot of the Shemiras Haloshon of the Chofetz Chaim per day.

    Everything one does, with good intentions, and with full emunah and bitachon, could only help.

    May we all be zocher to have an abundance of HAGEFEN, with many simachot with simcha, refuot, yeshuot, nechamot for all who need them, shidduchim hagunim for all, zerah shel kaaimah for all, with much needed achdut between all the Yidden, which will bring us the ultimate Geulah ve Yeshuah bimharah ve yamaynu Amen!

    By the way, Kapusta, I made your potato Kugel and bagels and they were fantastic! May you and all who need shidduchim hagunim, be zocher to build a bayit neeman le shem ule tiferet le Yisrael be karov amen!

    Wishing everyone a Gut and meaningful Shabbos!

    I said as much tehilim as I could between the two readings but I didn’t manage to finish the who thing, does that mean I’m not worthy of the segula??? I really wanted so badly to finish the whole thing! I really need my zivug already!! I daven everyday to hashem to send it to me. It’s something I really need at this stage in my life and I cant carry on without it! Please everyone out there daven for each other!!! Daven for all of klal yisroel, then we will all be redeemed.
