Has anyone in the Coffee Room heard of a segulah for Shidduchim whereby 13 people say Perek 13 of Tehillim 13 times for 13 days?December 30, 2020 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm #1933563GadolhadorahParticipant
You cannot ever go wrong saying a kapital tehillim for a worthy cause, but if you go out and give $13 to 13 homeless people on 13 consecutive freezing days in the winter, you are more likely to find your beschert. I’m not sure where these so called “segulahs” originate and there is no end to the number of “verified” outcomes posted on various social media sites promising “similar results” for a small donation but the best likelihood of success is always rooted in your own effort to get out and meet people (virtually for now) and engage in whatever activities that will help others in need.
Much hatzlacha (unless you were just inquiring for “a friend”.)December 30, 2020 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm #1933764commonsaychelParticipant

What if they do it for 14 days? Does that ruin it?December 30, 2020 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm #1933835Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
Did you try getting 13 college credits in 13 weeks, working 13 hours for 13 days every week, asking 13 friends to ask their wives to introduce you to 13 ladies each?December 30, 2020 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm #1933837
I will give you an interpretation. איש, אשה שכינה שרויה ביניהם – thirteen adds up to אחד, unity – husband, wife and Hashem multiplied.December 30, 2020 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #1933839KilaolomchasdoParticipant
The best segulah is to daven to the Ultimate Shadchan above and to have bitachon.December 30, 2020 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #1933873
Will you pay shadchnus to Him by keeping His mitzvos?December 30, 2020 9:04 pm at 9:04 pm #1933877
Each of the three is unique, Hashem, the husband to the wife and the wife to the husband being אחד,
thirteen. The relationship is unique. They are both connected to Hashem. איש through the ,י,
אשה through the ‘ה’ and כתובה through ‘וה’.December 30, 2020 11:47 pm at 11:47 pm #1933888
The Perek for a shiduch is 121 not 13. Thirteen is for the galus.December 30, 2020 11:49 pm at 11:49 pm #1933892Sam KleinParticipant
I have actually heard of this segulah exactly how you wrote it but it starts on 13 Teves which was on Monday and continues for the following 13 days straight.
May Hashem answer all your tefillos and help you find your zivvug bkarov. Only with complete faith and trust in Hashem can you make it through this journey and test.December 31, 2020 2:17 am at 2:17 am #1933943rationalParticipant
I wait in vain for the system to abandon superstitions.December 31, 2020 6:57 am at 6:57 am #1933983rationalParticipant
“What if they do it for 14 days? Does that ruin it?”
Although this comment had sarcastic intent, it hits the nail on the head.
Saying a specific prayer a specific number of times on a specific day by a specific number of people is classic obsessive compulsive behavior. The OCD person is always worried that he didn’t perform the ritual “just right” and will repeat it until done properly.
The practicers of this (and others like it) segulah need professional help.December 31, 2020 6:59 am at 6:59 am #1933985RABBAIMParticipant
Can you bring yourself to cry in yearning and pleading to Hashem for yourself and others in the same matzav?? That is the segula mikol haamim!
