Q&A: Bad Dream

Q: I had a bad dream about something terrible happening to my baby. I am terrified. Please help.

A: As our Sages say, "Chalomot shav yedabayru," dreams speak of naught. In order to sweeten the negative impression that remains from this dream, give charity and say the chapter in Psalms that corresponds to the age of the baby. (Add one to his age.) When a person feels distressed due to a dream, this is an atonement for his sins. Our sages teach us that King David had a bad dream every night. Most importantly, develop your trust in God that all will be truly good!
