Q&A: Do Segulot (Charms) Work?

Q: Can segulot (charms) replace human effort?

A: The primary approach to segulot should be:  “Yaga’ta umatzatah.” The outcome of one’s efforts is relative to the effort that he invested. However, this does not contradict the fact that there are segulot for certain things. They should not be the primary effort of one’s Divine service and they are not the purpose of that service.
