18 Rotel: A Wonderful Segulah
To the Editor:
This year I merited to be at the gravesite of Rabbi Shimon
bar Yochai on Lag B'omer, and I was impressed by the
dedication of all the people distributing chai rotel.
Every few meters, someone "forced" me to have a drink.
For the benefit of the public and those who could not get
there or lacked the means to purchase a share in this
mitzvah: There is a wonderful segulah that one can
take part in all year, at no cost and without taking a trip
It says in the Torah, "If you will follow My decrees and
observe My commandments and perform them. . ." Rashi
explains, "Study the Torah arduously." This is followed by
all of the blessings and salvations we long for. The meaning
is that through labor in Torah one can merit the right
zivug, have children, be cured of illness, etc., etc.
Perhaps we should adopt this "rare" segulah and
believe the one who wrote that even in times of hardship one
can be certain that it will bring bountiful blessings,
success and all the yeshuos upon us.
