“Want a sandwich?”
“No thanks. I don’t feel like bentching.”
What you have lost, if you’ve ever expressed such hesitation, is a golden opportunity to tap into the enormous power contained in Bircas HaMazon -- the only berachah that is a mitzvah d’Oraisah, ordained by the Torah itself. You’ve lost a chance to say “thank You" to Hashem, who has given you so many blessings, so many gifts.
A lost opportunity indeed.
In Touched by His Blessing, bestselling author Rabbi Yechiel Spero gives us a book that will transform the way we “bentch" -- and the way we live our lives. We will discover the power of Bircas HaMazon to enhance our emunah. To alleviate our stress about our financial situation. To bring about a deeper connection with Hashem.
Touched by His Blessing brings us inspirational insights, fascinating halachic discussions -- and, of course, stories. Stories of both famed tzaddikim and simple Jews who said Bircas HaMazon with devotion and love. We will meet the Jew who survived as “the chef of Auschwitz" through his care in bentching. We’ll gaze with wonder upon the siddur used by the Ba’al Shem Tov -- and at its pages of Bircas HaMazon, stained with his tears. We will read stories about the amazing power of Bircas HaMazon to protect our property, our livelihoods, and transform our very lives.
We will be privileged to be Touched by His Blessing. And we will never, ever say “I don’t feel like bentching” again!
