Effective March 1, 2007, we will no longer charge a fee for copies of patriarchal blessings. This applies to both individual and ancestral blessings. In order for our staff to efficiently process requests in a timely manner, it will be necessary to limit requests to four (4) blessings for each request, with a maximum of four (4) per year.<br>

We are currently in the process of digitizing our collection of 3.5 million patriarchal blessings. Once this project is completed, it will be much easier for members around the world to receive copies of blessings. At that time, we hope it will be possible for you to get more than four (4) at one time.
