Join us as we continue our journey focused completely on the topic of blessings. A fundamental importance of Judaism and Halacha are to know the correct Brocho (blessing) appropriate for a given situation.
Class is open to men and women. No cover. Light refreshments.
Based on the book, -a Halachik masterpiece- titled (in Hebrew): Birchas Hanehenin, and authored by Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi sometime during the years 1771-1812. The volume deals specifically with the blessings that are recited over foodstuffs (such as wine, bread and fruit), Fragrances (such as the scent of a rose), thanksgiving (such as the birth of a child), and praise (that one would recite on recovering from a serious illness).
Classes will be text base and will begin with the foundation of blessings from their original sources.
