Rebbetin Riddle Says...

Remember your blessings!
  A person can fool some people all of the timeThe Power of Prayer  

Most blessings start out the same way, just the endings change. Here are the words- so the next time you get a chance, you can say a blessing too!

Baruch A-tah A-Do-Noy E-lo-hei-nu Melech HaOlam...

"Blessed are You, G-d, our L-rd, King of the Universe..."

Over kosher drinks, fish, meat, cheese, add:

She'hakol Ni'hiya Bid'varo

"Who creates everything with His word."

Over fruit of the tree, add:

Bo-rei P'ri Ha'eitz

"Who creates fruit of the tree."

Over fruit of the ground, add:

Bo-rei P'ri Ha'adama

"Who creates fruit of the ground."

Over cake and cookies, add:

Bo-rei Minei Mezonos

"Who creates various kind of food."

Over bread, add:

Ha'motzi Lechem Min Ha'aretz

"Who brings forth sustenance from the earth."

If it is a blessing over a Mitzvah, we add:

Asher Kidishanu B'Mitzvosav Vitzivanu...

"Who sanctified us with His Commandments, and commanded us ...."

Lehadlik Ner Chanukah

"to light the Chanukah candles!"

Rabbi Riddle's Kwazy Kwestions:
  1. When old friends meet, they say the blessing, "Hatov V'HaMaitiv!" which thanks G-d for doing good. What do you say when meeting a friend for the first time?
  1. L'Chaim!
