The Ilan Ilan blessing is one that you wish to anybody who already has everything yet you'd like to show your appreciation to.
In Talmud Masechet Taanit 5b it is explained that as Rabbi Nachman takes leave of Rabbi Yitzchak‚ the latter blesses the former with a parable and compares Rabbi Nachman to a tree that has sweet fruit‚ pleasant shade and a bountiful water supply.
The meaningful and picturesque text is a tale. A weary traveler comes to rest near a tree. He drinks clear water from the stream nearby‚ eats from the fruits of the tree‚ and rests in the shade.
After the traveler feels refreshed‚ he prepares to resume his journey. He turns to the tree and says: 'Ilan Ilan- dear tree- with what can I bless you should I wish you to be full of sweet fruits' You have that. With a stream of clean‚ clear water' You have that. Should I wish you to be a source of shade' You have that too. What I shall wish for you is that all that comes forth from you will be blessed with more of the same'. The Ilan Ilan blessing is a perfect appreciation gift to donors and people involved in community work especially when the Ilan Ilan blessing comes personalized.
