I heard a story a while ago. The story goes something along these lines. It was about a girl who had cancer, so decided to do something about it. She took upon herself to wear tznius clothes and miraculously she was okay. She went with a few of her friends to the mall to buy new clothes and there was supposed to be a bomb that blew up supporting pillars but it didn’t work. I would like to know if anyone has proof if this story is real or it’s all a joke. Please let me know.February 21, 2012 9:04 pm at 9:04 pm #853254mytakeMember
It could have happened, although I never heard about it.
But what’s the connection between the girl’s kabbala and the mall blowing up?February 21, 2012 10:01 pm at 10:01 pm #853255ZissyParticipant
Heard from Skulener rebbe shlit”a a few similar stories, with women that were seriously ill and they took upon themselves to dress more tznius’dig, or started to shave their heads and cover it, and the illness disappeared.February 21, 2012 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm #853256HLMMember
I heard the story a while ago and it sounded true to me but don’t know where to find its sourceFebruary 21, 2012 10:28 pm at 10:28 pm #853257zaidy78Participant
If I recall correctly it is in Chaim Walder’s People Speak 4. But I maybe wrong.February 21, 2012 11:16 pm at 11:16 pm #853258ambushParticipant
got it in an email like this:
In March, someone packed a car with 100 kilos of explosives and parked it at the CineMall in Haifa.
It was parked near a supporting pillar. Had it exploded, not only would it have destroyed that pillar, but other cars in the lot would have caught fire causing the gas tanks to explode. In that very popular mall, the consequences would have been too horrendously tragic to contemplate.
The explosion did not happen.
A passerby spotted some smoke coming from the car and alerted the police whose sappers were able to come and defuse the explosives.
Even Ehud Olmert, Prime Minister at the time, recognized this was a miracle, although he attributed it to the alertness of civilians.
Here’s what really happened:
Several weeks before this event, a girl in Haifa who had been sick and went for tests was told she had stomach cancer. The tumor was so big, and had metastasized, and there was nothing the doctors could do. They told her to go home for her final weeks.
This non-religious girl and her non-religious parents pleaded with the doctors to try. They begged them at least to make an effort. The doctors finally agreed and told her to come back the next day for surgery.
She was assigned a young, inexperienced surgeon. They felt it would be good practice for him, and since there was nothing that could help her, it didn’t really matter.
The night before the surgery, this non-religious girl pleaded with Hashem. She said to him, “HaKadosh Boruch Hu, when we had the Bais HaMikdosh people could bring you korbanos to plead their case. Now we have no Kohanim, we have no Bais HaMikdosh. But I still want to bring you a korban.”
She went to her closet and took out all her immodest clothing and took it out to the yard and burned them.
As her clothes went up in flames, she cried out, “This is my korban!”
The next day this girl went to the hospital in her nightgown. She had burned her entire wardrobe and this was all she had left.
She had the surgery. The giant tumor had not metastasized, as was previously believed. It was totally contained. It was easily removed. And it was benign.
She told all her non-religious friends about the miracle. When the girl had recovered enough to get out of bed, her friends brought over all their immodest clothing and made another fire and threw in their wardrobes.
Left with nothing to wear, the girls needed new clothes. When that bomb was supposed to explode at the CineMall, these girls were inside buying themselves new, modest clothing.
A miracle that a civilian saw some smoke?
Or a reward for Tznius?February 21, 2012 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm #853259ambushParticipant

The story (The Korban) is printed in the book It Could Have Been You Volume 2 by Nachman Seltzer (p 31), and the source is quoted as ‘As told over in the name of Rebbetzin Kanievsky (a’h) ‘February 22, 2012 1:36 am at 1:36 am #853262LogicianParticipant

someone’s kaballah saved countless people, a tremendous zechus!February 22, 2012 3:25 am at 3:25 am #853264yummy cupcakeMember
i definitely heard this story somewhere.February 22, 2012 3:54 am at 3:54 am #853265inspiredteenMember
I heard from Reb. Kanievsky a story about a bunch of girls who decided to become more Tznuis and gave up a bunch of not Tznuis stuff. They burnt it all.
In a huge shopping center there was a car filled with explosives that someone noticed and they stopped it from blowing up and a lot of people’s lives were saved.
Reb. Kanievsky heard the stories and said that it was in the zechus of the girls giving up their skirts that the bomb was caught.February 22, 2012 8:55 am at 8:55 am #853266
I remember the news story from when it happened. Did also hear the story about the girl(s) before.
