Liturgical oops @ LimmudPhilly, “Birkat ha-moo-zon”

I went to LimmudPhilly and wrote a bunch of posts. Here’s a guide to them.

There were no benchers at LimmudPhilly. There was some grand plan to produce some that didn’t pan out at the last minute, so this Birkat Hamazon sheet was hastily assembled.

And yes, Desh–a frequent Jewschool commenter who I finally met in person at Limmud Philly–did indeed moo during Birkat Hamazon at one meal.

And yes, upon discovering this typo, knowledge of it quickly spread hilariously and not-so-quietly throughout the assembled crowd of people attempting to say Birkat Hamazon.

    My favorite recurring typo in birkat hamazon is the first word of the last paragraph, יְראוּ, written יִרְאוּ, leading to the sentence:
    יִרְאוּ אֶת ה֬ קְדוֹשָׁיו
    which has a nice ring of heresy to it.

    As I said on Facebook, we have to cow-tow to the compilers of this Birkat sheet.
