  1. Is it a segula for something to light it?

    Is it a segula to bid even if you dont win?

    Is it a segula to read this post even if you dont bid?

    Is it a segula to write a comment that makes fun of me?

  2. It’s a segulah for parnassa as well as a segulah for infections.
    There are those who say it helps with acid, indigestion and some hemorrhoids.
    There is one documented case of it totally curing gingivitis!
    To me it sounds like a great item to bid on…..
    In all seriousness, The Minyan is a terrific organization that does amazing things for our community, and even if there is no segulah involved is a great Mosad to support.

  3. Is it mutar to pay someone to light their fire?
    Would it be considered being yotzei when u light someone else’s fire or only when u light your own fire?

  4. Is there also gonna be an auction for the first hot dog to come off the grill??? R’ Abadi thank you for providing this town with a wonderfull event every lag baomer. Me and my family look forward to it every year!

  5. to 11
    It cant be for the last hot dog because there is no last hot dog. They buy more than enough. If they grill every hot dog, you’d get the last one on Monday – if they dont run out of propane.

  6. By the way, this is the only time a year (aside for Purim) that The Minyan does some “formal” fundraising to cover some of their operating expenses. Although there are no salaries, regular day to day operations and upkeep do cost money.

    Helping this special organization in any way possible should serve as a zechus to you and your family.

  7. Reasons to be machmir, not lighting Medura

    2) Bal tashchis *
    3) Darkei emori *
    4) Yom shemes bo oviv v’rabo *
