My family has had quite a bit of misfortune last few months (sickness, theft and more). My wife suggested that we get our Mezuzahs checked.
Just a note on this: I understand that they must be checked twice every 7 years, but these Mezuzahs are less than 2 years old so they haven't been checked yet since after purchasing them.
I understand vaguely that there is a belief by some in a correlation between poor luck and unkosher Mezuzahs. I was quite skeptical but being a dutiful husband I agreed to take them to be inspected. There are only 3 mezuzahs as we have a small apartment.
On inspection I was told that 2 of the 3 had a lot of letters touching each other, but he fixed them. I was immediately asked by the Rebbetzin if we have been having bad Mazel. I was shocked. Paid for the work done and left. Too shocked to ask anything further.
Can someone explain to me if their is any fact behind this, or is it a superstition. I very much hope that this is an end to our bad luck.
