It's MB 8:28 and :33–34. He says speaking about an unrelated matter would constitute sufficient interruption according to some but not others. He says also that, although walking to the synagogue does not constitute a sufficient interruption, some hold that a new blessing would be said because the original blessing was in a different location. But he ...
In Mishna Maseches Sukkah 3:11 it says that the after Beracha of Hallel is not obligatory like the first Beracha -so it's obvious that one would not say the after Beracha in the case of the question.
My solution is by far more fun than the other two answers. Say Mezonoth, bite the point off the bottom of the cone, say Shehakol, and suck the ice cream through the bottom!
OU.org says the cone does not need a brocho; it is subordinate to the ice cream. Even if ice cream is eaten in a cone, only Shehakol is necessary, since the cone is eaten only because of the ice cream and is clearly subordinate to it. Its purpose is actually not so much to be eaten as to hold the ice cream and to prevent the hands from becoming ...
Say "m'zonos" and nibble a bit off of the lip of the cone, or eat some other food that has the same b'racha.
We are saying that since according to one opinion you are still obligated to say the Beracha properly it follows that you should hear the Beracha from the Chazzan (or someone else) so that it will be a fully valid Beracha (שומע כעונה) without even a doubt of a ברכה לבטלה. To say the Beracha without Shem Umalchus is not an option if you could hear it from ...
The nusach hab'racha to "bless His nation Israel with love" is stated in Sotah (39a) by Rabbi Zeira in the name of Rav Chisda. The Zohar (Naso, 147b) writes that a kohein who blesses is required to have fond feelings towards the congregation. This is based on a similar teaching to that of the gemara (ibid. 38b, quoted in Gershon's answer) that "someone ...
A possible answer to your first question is that it's a blessing to each person individually from God. It's not a group blessing. Also the blessing is for each person listening. The blessing is talking to you personally. I asked one of my teachers why the gender is not changed for a girl and he answered me that one should not change it. It's a passuk from ...
Sotah 38: discusses Birchas Kohanim and then goes on to say that we do not give the Kos Shel Bracha only to one with a good eye. אמר ר' יהושע בן לוי: אין נותנים כוס של ברכה לברך אלא לטוב עין שנאמר: טוב עין הוא יבורך, אל תקרי יבורך אלא יברך Maharsha explains on this how Birchas Kohanim is supposed to be done B'Ahava = good eye.
Mishna Berura 489:32: If a person makes a mistake in the counting the best option is to fix it “toch kdei dibbur” (appx 3 seconds). If too much time passes and it is the type of mistake which disqualifies the count, he should count over again and make a new Bracha. Regarding if he realized his mistake in the morning, it would be similar to one who totally ...
In the book 'Birkhoth Eliyahu' the English version You will find all of them in Hebrew and English with transliteration. You can find there all the types of food + photos with their blessings
The Talmud (Bava Kama 92a) states: כל המבקש רחמים על חבירו והוא צריך לאותו דבר, הוא נענה תחילה Anyone who asks for mercy for his friend, and he needs that thing too, he is answered first. So you should consider praying for other people who have predicaments similar to your own. (Inspired by this answer.)
According to this page at Chadrei Charedim, the correct pronunciation (as demanded by the strictures of Hebrew grammar) is with a patach. Indeed, this is true: consider the form of similar phrases that appear throughout Tanakh: Genesis 7:1 - בַדור הַזה (bador hazeh); Exodus 5:23 - לָעם הַזה (la'am hazeh); Leviticus 23:27 - לַחדש הַשביעי הַזה (lachodesh ...
