Can a man fulfill his obligation by listening to a woman's Birchos HaShachar (morning blessings)? What about vice-versa?
I suppose my question breaks down into three parts:
- Do women have a lesser obligation than men to say Birchos HaShachar? (If so, I presume a man can't fulfill his obligation to listen along.)
- If men and women have the same obligation, and if the woman says a bracha conjugated for feminine instead of masculine (which some do and some don't; let's assume for instance men vs women say שלא עשני נכרי/נכריה), does that pose a problem?
- And for a really fun question (if the above two have been answered): the common practice is that men say "shelo asani isha", women say "she'asani kirtzono." What happens when a person of the opposite gender listens to the bracha with intent to fulfill his/her obligation?
