A number of sites had a reminder to say Parshat Hamann this past Tuesday as a segulah for parnossah.
Chadrei Chareidim has a story about a man who asked to be called up to the Torah this Shabbat for the aliya of Parshat Hamann. Exactly a year ago, he was called for an aliya for Parshat Hamann. He was having financial difficulties and asked the person reading the Torah portion of shishi to start a few verses ealier so that Parshat Hamann could be read in its entirety, as it begins at the end of chamishi.
He posted a notice in his shul that he asks for the kahal's forgiveness, if he made a "tircha detziburah" by having them rehear some of the verses, thus stealing a few minutes of their time.
May his wish for blessings for parnossah be fulfilled.
May Rebbetzin Elisheva Kahaneman, Elisheva bat Ahuva Liba, have a refuah sheleimah.
