Nivonimer Abigail Blas’ Bracha!
Yom Huledet Sameach (Happy Birthday) to 2010 Nivonimer Abigail Blas!
This past summer, edat ha-Nivonim studied brachot (blessings). At one point during the summer, each Nivonimer wrote their own bracha or chose a particular bracha that spoke to them. Here is Abigail's bracha:
Baruch Ata Adonai, Elohaynu Melech haolam,m’shaneh ha’briot.
Praised are You, Adonai who makes creatures different.
Abigail writes: This blessing is recited when one sees exceptionally strange looking people or animals. I like this blessing because it shows that Hashem still loves you and helps you no matter what you look like.
