    My teacher said that if we stare at the candles for a half an hour it will erase all the bad stuff we saw since last chanukah (considering you did it last year too)

    1. Is this true?

    2. If so. From where was this taken?

    3. Does it have to be a half an hour.

    She also said we should say certain perakim of tehilim in a certain order…it was from some letter some rav wrote.

    Has anyone heard of these to thing?

    and which perakim and which order?


    1. While I’ve heard something similar, I think it’s meant for men…

    3. I highly doubt it. The half-hour is probably the half-hour

    that the flame is meant to burn to fulfill the mitzvah.

    I assume you’re meant to look at it during that time.

    As far as the Tehillim goes, would that be R’ Nachman of Breslov’s

    “Tikkun HaKlali?” That’s definitely (primarily) for men.

    You should be able to Google it… eh, I’ll just do it myself.

    OK, according to Wikipedia(!), “The Tikkun HaKlali consists of the following ten Psalms said in this order:

    16, 32, 41, 42, 59, 77, 90, 105, 137, and 150,” and

    “Women also recite it as a general rectification for sin.”

    Ah freilichen Chanukah (and please ask a doctor if it is advisable to stare at a candle for 30 minutes before doing so)!


    Comlink-X, I am really starting to wonder if you are Randomex……?

    Special segulos for Chanukah,

    as told by Rebbitzin Yamima Mizrachi:

    o Use olive oil, but not just the regular kind, the best one: the one you would use to dress your salad and cook with. And the reasons are…

    o Children who are wise/smart, as oil rises above water

    May we merit to see wonderous miracles this Chag and always and may we merit to witness the most precious miracle of all: the coming of Mashiach ????? ?????? ??????, ???!
