Usually, this is done to indicate
that this blessing concludes the
section of the liturgy which one is
reciting. It also indicates that this
particular blessing completes an
action and has nothing to do with
any action or blessing which may
follow. Otherwise, the rabbis
frown upon the individual who
would recite the response "amen"
after a blessing which he him-
self made, since, in a normal cir-
cumstance, the - amen" is intend-
ed to be a- response which indi-
cates agreement and concurring
belief on the part of the listener.

mar. There are those, however,
who say that the goodness of God
is referred to in the present tense
because it is only the limitation of
human intellect which makes us
classify time in terms of past,
present, and future while all time
