Bottom line it depends what you're putting it on for. From Dose of Halacha: ..The Mishna Berura (14:11) writes that when one borrows a friend’s Tallis to Daven for the Amud, one should make a Bracha. The Aruch Hashulchan (OC 91:2) and Kaf Hachaim (OC 147:4) write that one who receives an Aliya (or any other Kibbud) should wear a Tallis out of respect for ...

Yes. It's in תפלת כל פה, and ArtScroll's, and Mesores's סידור וילנא, all of which claim to be Ashkenaz. It's also in Metsudah's סידור מצודת אברהם השלם, which doesn't claim to be any particular nusach, but which is widely understood to be Ashkenaz.

Assuming that your question asks in general, if one who has already made a blessing earlier in the day on either the tallit katan or the tallit gadol, the answer is in Shulchan Aruch OC 8. He states that whenever there is a hefsek (interruption), one must make a new bracha on the tallit. I think Magen Avraham does mention a possible exception regarding the ...

After searching a while different sites I found exactly what I was looking for. There is a website called Halachipedia which has a Berachot section. In it there aren't only berachot, but halachot regarding those berachot.

Yes there are many lists of most common brakhot on food and other occasions, e.g., Halachipedia on food and more broadly Chabad on food and other occasions OU on food God bless you :->

First, some background: The idea that each traditional berakhah and tefiyllah that can be found within the prayerbook has a specific number of words - even a prescribed number of letters within each word - and that each one is thereby meant to express a mystical meaning through gematriya (thus "proving" that it was transmitted perfectly from the time of the ...

I wrote this up as a question here although it is not an exact duplicate. Like you I believe we might need to say a blessing right away. See here for one possible source confirming this from R Herschel Schachter in a lecture on whether mezuza is a mitsva d'oraita or d'rabbanan (since the accepted view is that it is d'rabbanan for renters) who concludes that ...

I think the premise to your question is mistaken. The situation of delaying a blessing only applies if you don't know how long you're renting for and are concerned you will be living there LESS than 30 days. But if you have a set lease for more than 30 days (and will be living there long term) then you should put a mezuzah up as soon as possible with a ...

Perhaps the fact that you are thinking about can actually be directed to proper Kavanna. Rav Avigdor Miller writes in his sefer, Shaarei Orah, that one should be thankful of the fact that he is healthy and does not have to have troubles in regard to his health as there are people who do not have such. If it can be channelled in a way in which you can be ...

An Acharon - I don't remember which - says that anything which is not a "pri", i.e. does not have the shape and form of a fruit - can not be said "borei pri ha'etz" upon, since the actual words of the bracha are not literally true.

Tosefos to Berachos 36b, s.v. ברטיבא, writes that sap gets a העץ based on a verse, כי יערי אם דבשי (Shir Hashirim ch. 5).

Cinnamon is hadomo OU guide , saider 6.19 See laws below that only the friut of a tree has the borcho hoaitz, but liquids (excluding what comes from olives and graips) are shehakol (Regarding smell, sap has the brocho as it comes from a tree atzai vsomim saider 11.6 source bach 216 d"h vhamstki in rashi and ran name, m"a 216.8, eliya raba 216.10) Saider ...

The Kabala discusses the mystical reasons behind Birkat Hailanot. The Chida writes that there are different neshamot that might be locked up in the trees and by making the bracha we release them. This is consistent with the idea that we make the bracha in Nissan and on fruit trees (because freeing up the neshamot is a parallel to the blossoming of the ...

Boreh Nefashot has easier halachot than Birkat HaMazon and Me'eyn Shalosh, and so even though it is preferable to say it where you ate, so as not to forget to say it if you leave, it's not mandatory. Source - Rabbi Eliezer Melamed here, with a few sources mentioned there as well. He also mentions some who say that if it's one of the seven minim then it ...

You should wait until finishing drinking and then make one after-Bracha on your whole meal or snack. To do otherwise would be to cause a Bracha She'ayna Tzricha.

I just asked a Rav I know a very similar question: what if I was eating a banana and sipping water (which does not usually get a bracha acharona). He told me to say a Bracha Acharona upon finishing the banana. This would cancel both the haadama and the shehakol. I would then be required to wait five minutes or so, and then say a new bracha on my drink. I ...

Regarding hoilchai drochim this law only applies to bread see taz 178.9 From Siddur birchas hanenenin 9.11,12,13,14,15 see footnotes below for original sources Regarding to go Things that are borai nifashois if you take them to another place, having in mind only helps (not having to say another first brocho) if the second place is in the same house, or ...

The implication in the question is that one has left the kitchen (or the place where one has been eating) after the eggs are finished. If one continued to sit at the table and drink the coffee, then it appears that the question has not come up. I deal with this question in Should you say a new Bracha on coffee when leaving the coffee shop? The fact that you ...

Tosfot on Talmud Brachot 60b as cited on p. 102, here, says: He makes this blessing even if he did not hear the rooster because this blessing was established to acknowledge the benefit that we receive from sunlight that the rooster senses and the rooster receives a benefit from the sunlight. In other words, we receive the same benefit of sunlight ...

The word sechvi can mean a rooster or the heart. Just as God gave the rooster an understanding of the difference between day and night, we thank Him that He gave our heart the understanding that it is time to wake up and serve Him (based on Artscroll which cites the Rosh). The Chidushei HaRim (from here) explains it as a daily reminder that, just as HaShem ...

The real question here is not so much what are the components of the medication but rather whether or not it has a good taste. If it has no taste, it doesn't require a blessing at all. We only say blessings on food that have good taste (ha'naat grono, pleasure of the throat) or nutritional value (water has no taste but we still enjoy it when thirsty). If ...

Sorry, but from the Shulchan Aruch and Simla Chadasha (below) it seems signing does not count for Brochois. But for prayer see my answer http://judaism.stackexchange.com/a/63904/5120 You can answer Omain if you did not hear anything only you know what the Brocho is about. See source below (if too much time did not pass). The Bais Yosef 124.8 brings the ...

At my wedding, we split the seven Brachos into 6 honors (the first and second brachos together, since the 1st is not unique to a wedding, then each subsequent bracha alone). I have been to many, many weddings and this same paradigm was used. The Mesader Kedushin was Rav Shmuel Kamenetsky.
