Special Segulot for Yom Kippur,

as told by Rebbitzin Yamima Mizrachi:


  • Very important to ask for forgiveness and forgive everyone. You must say the words “I am sorry / סליחה” and it is very important to ask the person to say the words “מחול לך, מחול לך, מחול לך” “You are forgiven, You are forgiven, You are forgiven” 3 times. Otherwise it is not considered that you are forgiven.


  • It is of the utmost importance to forgive your children and to say the words “You are forgiven…. מחול לך …” 3 times. Hashem is ‘upset’ when parents are upset with their children and have not forgiven them.


  • Before lighting the candles for Yom Kippur donate 18 of something as a Kofer nefesh. This truly has the power to take care of any unforeseen illness, chas v’shalom.


  • As is the custom on Yom Kippur to light yahrzeit candles for the deceased, a’h. On a separate table, light a candle for each member of your immediate family. It is called a “health” candle dedicated to the health of each one of your family members. Please make sure to light these candles away from the yahrzeit candles. If any of the candles blow out any time before the end of their wicks, then relight it at the end of the fast until it is completely finished down to the end of the wick/wax.


  • Very important to bless your children the special bracha written in the Yom Kippur siddurs before going to shul on Erev Yom Kippur. This is a moment of unbelievable power to truly bless them for everything: shidduchim, health, happiness, nachas, wisdom. It erases any curses that may have been said to the children, c’v. Can be done by Aba or Ima.


  • During the prayers in shul when the chazzan says: ויעבר…., v’Ya’avor… This is a time of unbelievable Rachamei Shamayim. Use it to ask for forgiveness from Hashem. It is as if there is a lawyer fighting your case in shul at that moment.



  • Neilah נעילה is a time when Hashem gives us the opportunity to request anything that just seems to be locked in place and just doesn’t seem to be getting answered. 20 minutes before sunset on Yom Kippur Hashem opens up the door that is closed all year long. This is a time of unbelievable sha’at ratzon, עת רצון.


  • When the congregants say שמע ישראל, Shema Yisrael, yell it out with them, this is a time of great unity in Klal Yisrael. All the Jews everywhere are in shul at the same time reciting Shema at the same time … Chazal teach that we should say this Shema as if c’v it were the last time, just before a person passes away. Ask Hashem to open the doors to your wishes.


  • As we say “ה’ הוא האלוקים” envision that we are ‘escorting’ Hashem back to Shamayim. He has been with us since the beginning of Elul and is now ‘going back’ so to speak to Shamayim. We say ה’ הוא האלוקים 7 times, envision that each time we say this we are ‘elevating’ Hashem to the next level in Shamayim until the 7th and uppermost level: Hashems home.


Each time we say ה’ הוא האלוקים we should ask for another wish. It is a time when the yetzer hara makes us confused because it is filled with kedusha and a very auspicious time, עת רצון גדול. Therefore, write your wishes down and keep it in your siddur and each time we say Hashem Hu HaElokim ask for one thing. Don’t waste these precious moments when you are standing in front of the Holy Throne. Don’t leave Hashem for a moment stay with Him. And just as the Kohen HaGadol would go into the holy of holies once a year for 30 seconds to ask Hashem on behalf of the nation, you are given this same chance. Escort Hashem home. Whoever is zoche to escort Hashem back to Shamayim during the reciting of these words, will feel his presence all year long, Amen!


  • At the end the Chazzan blows the last and long shofar sound and that is it -Hashem is now home and we are waving goodbye to Him. But it is at this time we should look towards the entranceway of the shul and envision Mashiach coming through the doorway. Envision all of the sick people being healthy, all of our loved ones and righteous tzadikim coming back to be with us…. This is a time for great hope…


May we all have a meaningful fast, one that truly cleanses us to better serve the Almighty with great passion all year long. And may we all be sealed into a wonderful year and finally see the end to all suffering with the coming of the Mashiach, AMEN‼

Rosh Hashanah Segulot

Can’t Live Without You, Hashem


Special segulos for Rosh Hashanah, as told by

Rebbitzin Yamima Mizrachi:

  • It’s vital everyday not to get angry, but in particular on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, this is the day the Jewish people are judged, the gentiles are judged on the second day. On this day there is strict judgment in Shamayim and it is a must not to get angry at all, not even to think in an angry way. Don’t invite guests that you know will ‘push your buttons’ that you will not be able to control, wait to host on the second day. Don’t get stuck in worry, anger and definitely not in sadness. The way the year begins, is the way it will flow the coming year. Don’t allow yourself to speak badly.


  • Before sitting down at the Seder look at everyone’s eyes and bless them each individually, feel forgiveness for everyone around you. Allow love and peace to enter your heart. Everyone should say a ‘L’Chaim’ out loud and bless each other with complete simcha.


  • The Rosh Hashanah table should be filled with abundance of colors, different types of foods.


  • Apples and honey: use red apples, it is a segula for a zivug, to find one’s soul mate/shalom bayit and for getting pregnant. It is an eis ratzon, special holy time, before eating the apple, smell the apple and ask for whatever you want. It was at this time that Ya’akov received the blessing from his father Yitzchak. When he smelled Ya’akov he smelled the fragrance of Gan Eden, of the apple, and even though he was undeserving of the bracha, due to the fact that it was supposed to go to Esav, he still received it. Ask for anything you wish.


  • Pomegranate and rubia: ask Hashem to bring out your potential. We all have never ending potential, do we use it all? Ask Hashem for help.. just like it’s hard to take apart the seeds, please Hashem help us realize our potential and be who we are meant to be.


  • Leeks, beets, dates: ask Hashem to take away any feelings of resentment, anger, bitterness towards anyone. Ask Hashem to help us throw these feelings away from ourselves and remove them from our heart. Ask Hashem to enable you to be able to rebuild your feelings and relationship with these people.


  • Fish head: ask Hashem that you should lead your household and not anyone else (like our children who tend to control us…) when looking at the fish, ask Hashem to protect you from the evil eye.


  • All throughout the seder, ask Hashem to make your home a palace: you the queen and your husband the king, your children the prince/princesses. Ask Hashem to make you all children of the King, this requires us to act like children of the King, meaning again: DO NOT GET ANGRY, WORRIED, DISTRESSED, be royal.


  • Get up early on Rosh Hashanah; this blesses the coming year with ease. A year that your wishes will be fulfilled quickly. Try to postpone your afternoon rest until after 1:00 pm.


  • It is vital to daven for parnassah on Rosh Hashanah, according to Rav Dessler ztk’l. This proclaims that we trust in Hashem and know that everything is from Him. Ask to be a giver of tzadakah.


  • Very important to dress festively, even wear white and be HAPPY‼


  • Before hearing the shofar accept upon yourself: v’Ahavta L’Reiacha Kamocha (Love your neighbour as you love yourself). If you hold a grudge towards someone in the shul, the shofar will not be able to ascend and sweeten the judgments.


  • During the shofar: think of the following: resurrection of the dead, that Hashem can revive anything that has ‘died out’ in you be it physically and spiritually. Don’t talk during the shofar blowing. Think about all that you want to be. We are being reborn!


  • Very important to shed a tear during the shofar and to wipe the tear over your forehead (to wipe away transgressions {AriZal zt’l}). This serves as a shield for the entire year against any bad things i.e. illness. Whoever is able to shed a tear then can be rest assured that she is being judged at that moment and if she comes back to teshuvah at that point, she will be blessed with a good year.


  • During the first blow of shofar, take one particular transgression that you did and ask for forgiveness. During the second blows of the shofar, the shevarim, hurt/cry for those who are in pain and in sorrow, i.e. the families of terror victims, the families that lost their loved ones, those who are ill….


  • During the next set of blows accept upon yourself a new mitzvah: tznius, tefillah, tzedakah… The intention should be in your heart without uttering a word.


  • During Mussaf prayer when the chazzan says the word: ayeh, you can ask for one of three things, whisper to yourself:


1) Parnassah             2) Ruach Hakodesh             3) Righteous Children



  • Once we hear the shofar on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, the judgments are lessened and sweetened and there is less stringency in Shamayim.


  • Don’t eat anything sour or spicy on Rosh Hashanah, only sweet foods. Everything that you do makes an impact on the entire year. Don’t use walnuts or black grapes.



Other segulos:

1) Prepare the seder table early in the afternoon, it is a segula that no troubles will come upon you the entire year, B’H.

2) Try to do ta’anit dibur, not to speak, the morning of Rosh Hashanah (speak only words of Torah). If possible fast as well; this way 1/3 of your transgressions will be wiped away. This comes out on Wednesday morning.

3) Candles for Rosh Hashanah: before lighting give 18 of ‘something (coins, bills) to tzedakah: 18 cents, 18 dollars, etc.. This serves as a pidyon nefesh. Ask Hashem that if something bad c’v is supposed to happen, let the tzedakah stand as a protector against it.

4) Buy a new knife and use it on Rosh Hashanah eve to cut open the challah and apple. It is a segula for a long life and for parnassah.

5) Bake challahs: bake it in the shapes of a circle.

6) Bircat Hamazon: the first one said on Erev Rosh Hashanah say it with enthusiasm and joy, it is a segula for an abundance of parnassah.

7) Recite the following perakim of Tehillim Alef, Beit, Gimmel and Daled before sleeping on both nights to prevent bad dreams.

8) Buy a new dress/clothing for Rosh Hashanah. Intend on this new article when reciting the bracha of She’hechiyanu




ויהי רצון מלפני אדון כל הנשמות ריבון כל המעשים  שתתחדש  בחסד וברחמים  ברכת רבי ישמעאל בן אלישע כהן גדול :

יהי רצון מלפניך שיכבשו רחמיך את כעסך ויגולו רחמיך על מידותיך ותתנהג עמנו לפנים משורת הדין



Shavuot Segulot

As told by Rabbanit Yemima Mizrachi shtichye’:

No getting angry on Shavuot!  The AriZal writes that whoever gets angry on Shavuot reduces his Torah for the whole year!!!  The wisdom he is supposed to get is reduced

Read tehillim on Shavuot before going to sleep and fall asleep while reading.  Wake yourself up and continue to read a bit more tehillim until you keep falling asleep. Then close the tehillim and go to sleep. It is as if you are still reading Tehillim while you are sleeping. Our tehillim is like 5 Chumshei Torah.

Decorate your home with greenery.  Place flowers on either side of your entrance doorpost to your home and recite the passuk from Tehillim 92:13 through the end 16, “Tzaddik k’tamar….” Have the intent that your children should be decorated with righteousness and grown straight in the Torah path.

Put a dish on honey on the dining table from the beginning of the Chag until the end.  The Torah is sweet as honey; may it be Hashem’s will that we have that sweetness always, Amen.

Say new Torah insights as much as possible during the evening and morning seudot.  It is a segula that the wellsprings of wisdom will be renewed for us the whole year.

Have your husband buy you perfume!  The most subtle wisdom comes down from Heaven – the very essence of feminine wisdom, says the Pele Yoetz ztk’l.  Each utterance that Hashem said when He brought Torah down into the world came with a fragrance.  Perfume has a special meaning, a femininity.

After the meal Shavuot evening the Heiliger Alshich ztk’l teaches give a giant prayer for coupling and closeness of heart.  Ask for your true love match and if you are already married for Shalom Bayit.  This is the night when Leah Imeinu goes out to meet Yaakov after giving the mandrakes dudayim to Rachel Imeinu.  From then on she becomes his married wife and Yaakov loves her immensely.  That night she conceives Yissachar.  Wisdom and Torah are only possible when a great strong bond connects husband and wife!

In the morning Mother’s should go over to her children and cover their heads with a small towel or blanket and bless them while they are sleeping the Birkat HaCohanim, the Priestly Blessing.  Just as Hashem covered all of Ahm Yisrael’s head with a cloud in the morning at the time the Torah was given (the Rokeach).

When the Aseret Hadibrot are read in shul it is as though we are personally receiving them once again.  Healing comes down to the world and so it is the time to ask for a refuah shleimah for all.

In the afternoon, daven for all of Ahm Yisrael who has gone astray from the Torah path.  On Shavuot afternoon, Batya Pharoah’s daughter reaches out and saves Moshe Rabbeinu from the Nile moments before he was going to drown.  Since then, at that time, it’s possible to pull out the great terrible metaphoric Nile from those children or relatives who have gone far, far away, r”l.

  • It is good to read the following tehillim perakim in front of the menorah candles:

Begin by reciting the last passuk only in

perek (90צ  “v’hi noam….”

And then after the entire perek (91צא: repeat this 7x’s consecutively out loud + 1 time silently (total 8 x’s):

then continue with the perakim  (30) סז (67) ,לג (33) , ל (in the shape of the menorah), (133יט (19) , ק (100) , קלג

  • Recite the prayer of Ana b’koach
  • Look at the candles and absorb the kedusha of the Ohr Haganuz (the hidden light of creation).  You are buying emuna!
  • Use this time now to beseech Hashem
  • Ask Hashem to remove your fears and strengthen your emuna
  • According to the Chida ztk’l,  ask to see the good in others, to be gifted with a good eye: see the good in yourself, in others and in life’s difficulties, tests and tribulations
  • Ask for children who will float above in holiness.  They should be blessed with wisdom (oil) and good memory
  • HaRav m’Slonim ztk’l teaches that we should ask that our children go in the path of Torah until the coming of Mashiach and that they not be embarrassed to be ‘frum’.  They should be zoche’ to yirat shamayim and tzniyut.  Ask that we merit to greet them always with a ‘glowing’ smile and that we love each child the same with no favoring among them.
  • Fry donuts in lots of oil – according to the father of the Rambam HaKadosh, it is a praiseworthy practice that blesses us with bountiful sustenance all year long
  • Gaze at the candles and ask that Hashem erase any bad or difficult images and memories from our minds’ ‘hard drive’.  Ask that we should live with inner composure, yishuv ha’da’at.
  • Through the act of staring at the candle flames, we ask that we be gifted with the ability to see things clearly and see Hashem’s compassionate hand in all that occurs since we are glancing at a reflection of the Ohr Haganuz (the hidden light of creation).  This light enabled Adam HaRishon to see from one end of the world to the other and detect Hashem’s presence and Divine energy in everything.  So too, we ask that we see Hashem in every aspect of our lives.
  • Always try to light Chanukah candles in your home even if you will be going to someone else
  • Ask for Mashiach = משיח = מדליקים שמונה ימי חנוכה
  • Ask for a miracle – one you think is impossible in the zechut of your renewed emuna!


The Kedushas Levi says that each night of Chanuka is mesugal, an auspicious time for different things to daven for:

  • 1st night -not to be lonely or depressed
  • 2nd night- Shidduchim, Shalom Bayis, to find your marriage partner and marital peace
  • 3rd night- Good children, Happy children and healthy
    (Chasam Sofer ztk’l says when you cry in front of the candles you can be sure your tefilos are answered)
  • 4th night- 4 Imahos
    To be a healthy and wholesome woman/mother in the 4 walls of your home, of true essence
  • 5th night – Chamisha Chumshei Torah,  The Five books of Torah
    Daven that your husband should be a talmid chacham and your children. By the 5th night more of the menorah is lit up than not.  Pray for more light in your life, for clarity.
  • 6th night – Simcha
    You can have everything and still be sad, therefore pray for joy and happiness
  • 7th night – Happy and Peaceful Shabbos – zmiros ,Divrei Torah by your Seuda. Shabbos is the source of all bracha.
  • 8th nignt- mesugal, auspicious time to pray for barren women
    8 is above nature, powerful day to pray.

Kedushas Levi says if you are planning to start something new if you start it on Chanuka it will be blessed, B’H.
