Segulos from Reb Moshe

Filed under: deep reflections — Reb Moshe @ 1:02 pm

As a sofer, I extended my learning to also include the art of kamaya, writing segulos. For a donation to ilovetorah of $50 or more, I will make a segulah for healing, shalom bayis and other needs. B’H I have already helped many with these, they are not instant guarentees but they are known Jewish remedies through tradition. I see that I will need to raise more money to continue all the projects as my books and 90% of the site is all frozen due to lack of funding.

    Many rabbis and chochamim warn about those who offer to write kamayot today. For such a thing to be effective requires a high degree of tzidkut on the part of the sofer and deep knowledge of kabbalah maasit. Rav Kaduri, zt”l and Rabbi Ovadia Yosef have written about this many times.

    Do you have haskama from a recognized authority, like for example Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu or Rabbi Moshe Ben Tov, to write kamayot?

  2. Thank you Yaacov for your concern. I have the haskama from the Biala Rebbe Shlita & the Nikolsberg Rebbe Shlita to do it. I have also given many to various Tzaddikim and I learned from one of the most knowledgable Kabbalists in this area for 2 years.

    Results from segulos have been healing of knees, legs, cronic spinal problems, shalom, general healing, better friendships, connecting to ones neshamah more, finding oneself, more spiritual energy, problems at work with boss, cancer so far.

    I always recommend that a person tries to have emunah’s Hashem and it is far better then using any segulos.

  3. Dear Rabbi Moshe, as a sofet and kabbalist, what is the best way for a beginner to learn hebrew for the purpose of in depth torah study.
    Rabbis say, the world is susstained by three things!!! 1) CHARITY, 2) TORAH-STUDY, 3) THE SACRAFICE IN THE TEMPLE
    I’m affraid if I don’t understand something about a letter, I will miss that portion of the world to come.
    SHALOM !!!

  4. Oh, I’m sorry, The three thing’s are for the forgiveness of sins. and since the destruction of the temple, we have to study more and give more charity, to be forgiven of sins, for lack of the temple to sacrafice in. I’m still scared I won’t see that part of the world to come.

    Shalom u’vracha Anoch. What you are remembering are two ideas.

    The first is from Pirkei Avot, chapter 1 Mishnah 2 which quotes Shimon HaTzaddik as saying the world stands on three pillars, on the Torah (Torah study), and on the avodah (the offerings made in the Temple) and on acts of loving kindness (which includes not only charity which has set limits according to Torah but also general acts of kindness for which no limit is placed).

    The second idea is from the “Unetaneh Tokef” prayer of Rabbi Amnon said on Yom Kippur. After enumerating HaShem’s judgement which takes place on Rosh HaShanah, it explains that any “harsh” decree can be averted through the three pillars upon which the world stands.

    The final important idea is to know that HaShem didn’t leave us without a third pillar. Like in the case of a stool with three legs, if you remove one of the three legs it won’t matter how strong you make the other two legs. The stool won’t provide a place to sit (meaning a place for HaShem to dwell). It would collapse, chas v’shalom.

    We learn from chazal how we are to understand the current situation from what we say every day in the tachanun after the recital of the daily sacrifices in the morning prayers that “the words of our mouth are considered and accepted by HaShem as if we had offered the sacrifice at it’s proper time and stood at the proper place and burned the incense in its proper time. as it says (from Hoshea 14:3), ‘we render for bullocks the offering of our lips’.”

    In the merit of your desire for this mitzvah (of making the offerings in the Temple in Yerushalayim) may we all see its literal fulfillment according to its plain meaning in our day.

  6. Thank you very much yaacov. Very beautifly put, like a stool without 3 legs wouldn’t provide a plac to sit. Very beautiful, we render for bullocks the offering of our lips. It’s interesting, stood at the proper place and burned the incense in it’s proper time. I’ve heard that we don’t know how to make the incense anymore too,
    thank Hash’m, He’s beyond time and space.
    May we all see it in it’s literal fulfillment according to it’s plainmeaning in our day
    Sometimes I get incensed I don’t know hebrew yet.

  7. I’ve been reading torah and writinging of the profits in English. Anyone know any kind of midrashim for Mashal( Proverbs)9 :1-3 Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn out her seven pillars; She has killed her beasts, she has mingled her wine;She has also furnished her table; She has sent for her maidens, she has cried on the highest places in the city. Isiah 5:18- Wow unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were a cart rope. bereshit 6:1 – 4- The flood, especialy the part about the sons coming down and taking to marry anyone they chose, and nephilim .

  8. i’ve read in the Zohar that at the time of redemption the sun will burn 49 times brighter.
    I’ve been pondering this one for a while, I’d love to learn midrash -Proverbs30:19 King Soloman said there are 3, no 4 things things to wonderful for me to speak, to describe: The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea and the way of a man with a maid.
