DAF YOMI Yevamos 17a
THE AMUKAH PRANK
Segulah is a prank invented in the last 50 years.
There is no source in any ספר or a קבלה from any reliable source.
This Segulah was invented by a prankster. It caught on like wildfire
because desperate people believe and do desperate things.
The prankster combined two Rashis next to each other as if it read
כל פסולין שאין מוצאין אשה פונין והולכין שם והיא עמוקה
"All Pesulin who can't find a woman turn & go there.
(Where?) That is Amukah" (Prankster's Pshat)
The Gemoro (Yevamos 17a) says, why is it (a certain hill) called הרפניא?
Because of all the פסולין (Mamzeirim etc.) turn towards (go to)
this hill הר- פניא to find a spouse. (& having illegitimate
רבא said "This hill is (not a hill but a pit) deeper (עמוקה) than
שאול (Gihenom) From Gihenom one can be redeemed whereas a Mamzer remains
that way forever.
עמוקה is not
referring to the town Amukah but the word "deeper".
THE REAL SEGULAH - DAVENING & TALKING
Instead of Amukah festivals, perhaps we should
practice the 2 most
1) Daven at home
or in local Shul (no need for
Amukah- 40 Rabbonim - 40 days etc.)
2) a) Talk
- Redt Shidduchim.
b) Talk & explain to all your friends etc. why if we don't
do anything about narrowing the age gap we will
end up ח"ו with 20% of our sisters & daughters
as AGUNOS FOR LIFE
