UPON SEEING A TORAH SCHOLAR


This blessing is recited anytime one is in the company of a great Torah
scholar.  It should therefore be recited in the presence of the Messiah, of
whom it is written, “The islands await his Torah” (Yeshayah 42:4)

Blessed are you, O Lord, our God, King of the universe,
who apportioned some of his wisdom
to those who fear him.
