Anniversary Coming

Oh joy! The anniversary of this blog is coming shortly, and it promises to be quite a bash. We never know who will show up. Of course, the party is planned for Yerushalayim, but if moshiach doesn't come chas v'chalillah a million times kein hora, lo aleinu, rachmana l'tzlan, it will be right here on this site, G-d forbid. We may have our own million dollar challenge akin to Mr. Randi's. I saw posted on Chabad.org a video of Rav Kaduri speaking to the Chabad Rebbe in 1980. The Rebbe seemed pleased that Rav Kaduri had developed a yeshiva with a curriculum of practical kabbalah, not just sefarim. Perhaps he meant avodah, but obviously the imagination takes us to the more colorful parts of kabalah, amulets and magic.

Perhaps, we may offer to pretest for the million dollar reward if any student of the Kaduri yeshiva can demonstrate any effect that is "paranormal". No requirements for explanations of how it happened. Just demonstration under controlled conditions of a paranormal event, magic, psychic, astrological prediction, create a golem if you like.

Stay tuned.

  • What are the ground rules for proof? I could tell some great true stories for a million dollars. I swear. I've got this bridge in Brooklyn...

    If your rules of proof are going to be anything like Randi's, I suggest investing in an IRA or CD's...you won't need the cash any time soon.

  • Does it count if you heard a story from your 2nd cousin's mikveh lady's mother-in-law's friend about a segulah that "really" worked?

  • In honor of the miracles that G-d performed when taking the Jews out of Egypt, Jono and G-fish sing a song of praise, using the timeless Jewish folk tradition of Rap Music
