Q. My friend is visiting first time Canada and has never seen Lake Ontario, should he say a blessing on it?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is than one should avoid reciting a brocho with Hashem’s name on common lakes since there are not that unusual and are similar to others. Therefore, seeing them even first time does not create great wonderment or admiration.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit’a and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a
