Nivonimers Caleb Bromberg, Mimi Stern, and Emma Golub’s Brachot!

Yom Huledet Sameach (Happy Birthday) to 2010 Nivonimers Caleb bromberg, Mimi Stern, and Emma Golub!

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 Caleb's bracha:

Sound the great shofar to herald our freedom, raise the high banner to gather our exiles.  Gather us together from the ends of the earth.  Praised are You, Lord, who gathers the dispersed of His people Israel.

Here is Mimi's bracha:

Praised are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, creating light and fashioning darkness, ordaining the order of all creation.

Here is Emma's bracha:

Baruch Ata Adonai, Elohaynu Melech haolam,she’lo cheesar b’olamo davar, u’vara vo b’riot tovot v’ilanot tovim l’hanot bahem b’nay adam.

Praised are You, Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe who has withheld nothing from His world and who has created beautiful creatures and beautiful trees for humans to enjoy.
