Rabbi Noson Tzvi Finkel of Slobodka would sometimes sit near the window of his house and quietly bestow blessings and prayers on all those who passed by.

Once when Rabbi Finkel was walking down the street, he turned toward a house and said, "Good morning." Rabbi Finkel explained: "Most people only wish someone a good morning when they see them face to face. But even when we do not see them, we should still develop good will toward them."
