There is a segulah to hang a picture of a fish on your front door the entire chodesh Adar. This is because the mazal of Adar is Dagim and we hope to have the brocha that we should be zoche to reproduce like fish (among other reasons).It does not have to be an actual photograph of the big one that almost got away but any poster that decipts fish should work. I know quite a few people for whom this worked,(my sister and myself included).
I’m sure some will dismiss this as fishy but those in the parsha who are willing to try it, it certainly can’t hurt. If you do get engaged please pass it around so that others can be zoche to find their proper zivug.MaybeyouknowmeMember
A fellow comes to gehennom and is told he has a choice of gehennom.
The first one is NY Gehennom: you spend the day shopping at upscale boutiques up and down Broadway, spend the afternoon in s spa and then go out to dinner. At midnight we put you in a vat of boiling oil until daybreak when you start all over again.
The fellow doesnt like the sound of the boiling oil so he asks about the next option.
The next one is the LA Gehennom. Start off the day in a sprawling home in an affluent neighborhood, spend the day touring Hollywood, whooping it up in Disneyland,watching sunset on a serene beach. At midnight we put you in a vat of boiling oil until daybreak when you start all over again.
The fellow starts getting nervous about this boiling oil business so he asks about the third option.
Well the third one is Lakewood gehennom. Wake up in a narrow townhouse in a crowded development, race your beat up minivan around town trying to get to all the babysitters, drop off all the kids and still get a parking space a block and a half away from Yeshiva. Lunch is the same in reverse, have some warmed up leftovers and themn back to the crowded BMG. At midnight we put you in a vat of boiling oil until daybreak when you start all over again.
The fellow ask why anyone in their right mind would choose the Lakewood gehennom!!
The angel answers because in Lakewood midnight is not exactly at midnight, the boiling oil is not so boiling, there is a gmach for boilproof suits etc etc etc!!
