Just like chassidishe coats button right over left to show that rachamim should cover din, the hair and nails are the only parts of the body that are not needed, a klippah, so they shave it off and cut the nails. Everything has a reason.
I grew up “out of town” and moved to Brooklyn as a bachur. I was always very frusterated by the lack of warmth. Out of town including “out of town”-Jerusalem, everyone says good shabbos, even in the frumest communities (maybe not men to women, but to each other is very common). Now in the summer in Boro Park, I would walk in the streets and the other person would purposely look down and not make eye contact with me so he doesn’t have to say Good Shabbos. How cold can you be? It is amazing to me that people dont have manors or social skills. We are brothers, treat each other like brothers, how will moshiach come if we dont even want to look at each other?
Please, next shabbos look someone in the eye and wish them GOOD SHABBOS!
If you want an honest opinion call Ave M computers in flatbush. They are all frum yeshiva guys that wont cheat you. I had a big problem recently and I went to a few computer stores, they quoted me the lowest price and told me what was really wrong. I highly recommend them!
Good Luck, I know it is very frustrating.
I personally know the family from when I was learning in Eretz Yisroel, a true talmid chochom and ish chessed, kol hakavod to all those who are helping him in his time of need. I have seen the letters and already sent something. It is very worthwhile and every penny is going directly to him! (BTW Rabbi Dishon knows the family very well and wrote a warm letter).
Did anyone donate Chai Rotel? We were still discussing it over our shabbos table. I saw Rav Chaim Vital writes about the Arizal and how he danced for hours on Lag B’Omer in Meron.
I went last year and was overcome by the sight of hundreds of thousands of Jews, religious, modern, not frum all together dancing and celebrating Rebbe Shimon. How can Hashem not look down and see the simcha and Kiddush Hashem and give everyone exactly what they need?
In Judaism we believe in G-d, but we also believe that Tzaddikim can daven for us because they are closer to G-d than we are. This is plain and simple, why go to kivrei tzaddikim? If you beleive in the Torah and do what Hashem wants from us he will help us in return. The words of tzaddikim stay forever, and Rebbe Shimon said that he will help those who help increase simcha on Lag B’omer! It is in black and white in the zohar!
Does anyone know if this segulah only works to have children, or it helps for shidduchim, parnassah ect? It seems most of the stories revolve around having children.
I am interested to know
I have a friend that waited a long time to get married, He finally met his wife. Shortly after they were married, it was apparent that it would be medically impossible for them to have children. (without going into details). They went to many Doctors to see if they could help and everyone told them, impossible.
They spent many nights crying to Hashem. Finally around Lag B’omer they tried Chai Rotel and a year later she gave birth to a boy. Now the boy will have his bar mitzvah soon.
I believe it works!
It will be interesting to see if it will be full. It is hard to predict if it will be a success or not. I will go because of curiosity, but I don’t expect this to be a “siyum hashas” caliber.
