    I just read this and I thought I’d share, cause its beautiful.

    I get these daily messages via email from “simcha minute” which are inspirational quotes from Rav Avigdor Miller.

    “When you pass by a yeshiva, you think of asking Hashem to place a brachah (blessing) upon all the roshei yeshiva (senior lecturers), a brachah on all the talmidim (students), on the kollel (graduate students), all the wives of the kollel, all their children, and on all those who support the kollel.

    Merely by thinking these thoughts whenever you pass by a place like that, you are performing a very great mitzvah.

    Additionally, you are bringing the blessing of Hashem on yourself, as it says,”I will bless those who bless you.” (Ohr Avigdor Hakdama) “

    now ain’t that sweet?

    Very nice. Thanks for sharing.

    I remember reading once that when a person gives someone a bracha, Hashem gives us more bracha. Maybe someone else can clarify.

    A Bracha is the same as a Tefillah for someone else and the Gemara says that when you Daven for someone else you get answered first.

    Of course. A Yeshiva can’t run on its own.

    A brilliant pun is attributed to the second wife of the Maharil Diskin, who told him before the chupa:

    (There are sources attributing this to others as well. Either way I think it’s genius.)

    When the great anav Rav Yehuda Zev Segal zatzal, the Manchester Rosh Yeshiva, gave out his brachos, he said “Al tihye birchas hedyot kal b’enecha – even though I am a hedyot, my bracha should not be insignificant in your eyes because every bracha is very powerful, even from someone who is a pashuter hedyot like me”!!
