Rabbi Meir - The Master of the Miracle
Some charities in Eretz Yisrael call themselves the "Charities of Rabbi Meir Baal Haness". This is a reference to a story told in the Talmud about the great Sage, Rabbi Meir, who was able to ward off serious dangers to himself and others by the simple declaration of "G-d of Meir, answer me!" It is a tradition that one who gives charity in memory of Rabbi Meir merits having his prayers answered in the merit of this great tzaddik.
Rabbi Meir’s tomb in Tiberias is a popular site for visiting and praying to have miracles performed in the merit of this "master of the miracle".
