Nivonimer Eli Zimmerman’s Bracha!
Yom Huledet Sameach (Happy Birthday) to 2010 Nivonimer Eli Zimmerman!
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 Eli's bracha:
My God, keep my tongue from evil, my lips from lies. Help me ignore those who slander me. Let me be humble before all, open my heart, so that I may pursue You. Frustrate the designs of those who plot evil against me. Make nothing of their schemes. Do so because of Your compassion, Your power, and Your holiness.
