Volume 4, No. 17Welcome to the World of Rabbi Riddle.
Rabbi Riddle Says...
National Committee for Furtherance of Jewish Education

Blessed is the One Who Blesses!
  Forgive and Forget!G-d is Awesome! And Then Some!  
In the Torah portion of VaYechi, Jacob blesses his 12 sons and then his two grandsons Ephraim and Menashe. When a person blesses someone, he is asking G-d to reveal that other person's potential.

  • The wicked prophet Bilaam tried to curse the Jewish people, but G-d turned his words into tremendous blessings!

  • Parents traditionally bless their children on Shabbos, holidays, and other special occasions.

  • You don't have to be a tzaddik to give someone a blessing! You just have to give it with sincerity!

Rabbi Riddle's Kwazy Kwestions:
  1. Why do people say, "Bless you!" when someone says, "Achoo!"?
  1. Because a blessing is nothing to sneeze at!

  Forgive and Forget!G-d is Awesome! And Then Some!
