We got a brochure in the mail for a Chinese auction sponsored by Oorah. Two of the slots in the auction caught my eye:
- Eretz Yisroel—round-trip airfare to Israel, seven-night hotel stay for two, and a one-week car rental.
- Priceless Bracha—round-trip airfare to Israel, seven-night hotel stay for two, and a blessing from a Gadol.
I must therefore conclude that a Gadol’s blessing has a market value equivalent to a one-week Israeli car rental. Who knew?
