A virtue for fulfilling prayers? The Hanukkah custom that drives the network crazy Israel today


The lighters write their requests on a page, bury in a menorah in an aspiration that will be fulfilled by next year • Journalist Rachel Malk Buda uploaded a photo of her daughter who was recently born with the note she buried in the menorah she wanted to get pregnant • On the other hand, the rabbis point out

Many of the people of Israel will light the eighth - last Hanukkah candle tonight (Sunday).

A custom from an unknown source, invites the lighters to write requests on a page and store it in the menorah until next year, as a virtue for those requests to be realized by the next Hanukkah holiday.

Many women published their private miracle this year - requests they wrote on a page a year ago, and were fulfilled by this Hanukkah holiday. One of them is the journalist Rachel Malk Buda, who posted a Facebook post with a picture of her recently born daughter, with a note she hid in a menorah in which she asked to get pregnant and have a baby. "In my life I forgot about this note I put inside the menorah last year, and suddenly I found it among the reeds," she wrote, "a friend told me about this virtue and I said come on, let's try. The results are in front of you." Melk Buda was joined by other women, with their notes and requests fulfilled: health, buying an apartment, marriage and so on.

On social media, he wanted a message explaining how to perform the same virtue - "Take a page and a pen and write a letter to Kadosh Baruch Ho, write, 'From the Strait I read Ya Anani in the space of Ya' I ask for a treasure as a free gift, In addition, it must be ensured that when the miracles come true and take place, you will publish the miracle, and recite the prayer "Soul of every living thing" in the minyan.

Meanwhile, Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu said that we know a source for this virtue: "Substantial opposition to the matter and whoever wants to pray also so that a blessing will come upon him. But it is important to say that we have not heard of such a custom before."

On the other hand, Rabbi David Satyu said, "This mitzvah is so illuminating that I see no reason or need to add such a mystical dimension to the holiday. Therefore, my opinion is not comfortable with him. "

Among the women there are those who point out that it is not "magic" and not necessarily that what you ask for in that note will come true, "the very writing of the requests does good in the heart, but there is no guarantee that things will come true exactly as we wish, it is a belief to know we do not know," said one woman.
