I am looking to make a list of halachot/minhagim that involve doing something in 1 breath so I can see if I can draw any connections between them. So far, I have 3 things:

the shevarim-tru'ah (or at least the shevarim)

the aseret bnei haman (megillah 16b)

the 15 praises in Yishtabach (according to the shlah)

Are there other mitzvot/halachot/minhagim that require that we do or say something in one breath? (I don't mean "within the time of" but actually IN one breath)

    Don't forget the stanzas of Chad Gadya, Mi Yodeya, and Adir Hu!
