Birkat HaOtiyot -

Thanking God for teaching your hand the letters

Is there a blessing thanking the LORD for helping you learn how to write the Hebrew letters? Is there such a scrivener's blessing? Well, I found such a blessing in Kushner's Sefer Otiyot: the Book of Letters (Jewish Lights, 1990), so I thought I would share it with those of you who are learning to write the Hebrew letters (otiyot):

Blessed is the One who has taught my hand
to scribe the letters!

Transliterated:

Barukh hamelamed et yadi lesapper et ha'otiyot.
