Rabbi Victor Appell

Judaism offers us the opportunity to bless both our everyday moments and special occasions. Travel, whether for business or pleasure, is an occasion worthy of a blessing, expressing our hopes for both a wonderful time and a safe return home. The Tefilat Haderech, the Wayfarer's Prayer, offers beautiful words for doing just that.
