To whatever extent giving someone a beracha is effective, does a beracha given in writing have the same effect? Is the efficacy of the beracha somehow tied specifically to speech?

  • I'd have to assume a b'racha given in writing is at least somewhat effective, as pretty much every t'shuva you read in t'shuva books has one. Are you asking whether it's as effective as one given orally? – msh210 Nov 9 '14 at 5:35
  • @msh210 Sometimes a b'racha is a greeting or formality. – Y     e     z Nov 9 '14 at 19:33
