Nivonimer Michael Patashnik’s Bracha!

Yom Huledet Sameach (Happy Birthday) to 2010 Nivonimer Michael Patashnik!

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 Michael'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… May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable to you… Amen.
