Suggested Discussion Questions:
1. What is the significance of the word "even" (afilu) in what Rabbi Meir is arguing? What can we infer about the previous formulations by contrast?
2. What does this discussion in the Tosefta show about the development of food brachot?
3. Do you agree with Rabbi Meir or Rabbi Yose?
4. If you regularly say brachot, how does this practice help you feel gratitude? If you don't normally say brachot, how do you feel when you do?
