Tonight, the 8th night of chanukah, is also know nas zos chanukah. From my daily halacha email:
The 8th day of Chanukah is known as “Zos Chanukah” (in earlier times it was called “Chanukas Hamiz’beach”) named for the Torah portion we read. The day is mesugal for one to daven for; barren women to have children, for a Refuah Sheleimah, and for one to be blessed with increased Parnassah.December 27, 2011 3:32 pm at 3:32 pm #1049487MacherishMember

Thanks, I’m on it!!December 27, 2011 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #1049490JotharMember
From the kupat ha’ir website (not an endorsement of kupat ha’ir):
We all do everything possile to merit a sweet year in the days of Rosh Hasanah/Yom Kippur, and should do the same on Chanukah.
From another website:
Rabbi Mordechai ‘Finkelman Shlita said in the name of Rav oMoshe Wolfson Shlita that “Zos Chanukah is Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur all in one!”

kido- I disagree. Segulos need a source to be credible and not considered a buba maase. It may also need a source to avoid the issur of ?? ?????December 27, 2011 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #1049492Emunas ItechaMember
You know what is the best segula? YOURSELF! Zos Chanukah has the Kedusha of the past 7 days of chanukah built up. The sefarim hakedoshim bring down how its a very mesugaldik time to daven your heart out infront of the candles. Your own words. It is especially true with zivigum. Daven for anything and everything you need.December 27, 2011 7:59 pm at 7:59 pm #1049493SmartypantzMember
wow I never heard of this before! Thanks CR for enlightening me on this inyan!December 27, 2011 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #1049494sam4321Participant
The Bnei Yisschar brings down that for barren women it is a special time during Channuka and especially zos channuka (http://www.hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=4683&st=&pgnum=120&hilite=). The Gemara in Shabbas(23B) itself brings down a segula of having children who are talmidim chachmim by lighting as Rashi brings down from Mishlei(6) ner mitzva v’Torah ohr,ner mitvah = Shabbas,and channuka = Torah ohr.December 24, 2014 5:45 am at 5:45 am #1049495JosephParticipant
