Judaica oddity of the week
I really want one of these.
It purports to help the beginner, who can say the blessing along with the doodad. It repeats the blessing in Hebrew, word-for-word, followed by English.
The thing is though, wouldn't you need to know which prayer was relevant in order to press the correct button? From the picture, it seems to regard ha'etz as fruit, and ha'adamah as vegetables. Unfortunately, this isn't exactly accurate. Actually, it's not accurate at all (Strawberries, anyone?).
It does however, come with two bonus prayers!
