A Brocha For A New Job

Last night, I went to hear Rabbi Yissocher Frand give his inspiring annual teshuva drasha. My friend Neil posted his notes about Rabbi Frand's drasha here.

Before I left, I went up to Rabbi Frand and asked him for a brocha since I am starting a new job on Tuesday. I told him that of the many Jews who work in my organization, I would be one of the only Jews who wears a yarmulke at work. Rabbi Frand smiled and said, "Hatzlocha to you. May you be a kiddush Hashem there!"

It is my intention to do just this when I walk in Tuesday morning.
