The Jewish day is punctuated with reciting a variety of blessings (in Hebrew, brachot), acknowledging that our food and other pleasures come from God.
This course will primarily discuss the rules of reciting brachot over food -- both before eating, and after eating. It also covers blessings said on special occasions and when seeing natural phenomenon. You’ll gain a foundation in the principles of brachot, and explore the philosophical underpinnings of the bracha concept. This 44-part course delivers it all in a thorough, step-by-step, user-friendly fashion.
This course will give you the confidence to handle a myriad of common situations:
Each class is available online, or as a user-friendly PDF version, so you can print out the material and study at your own pace -- anywhere, anytime.
For a self-check of understanding, each class has interactive online testing: 8 questions based on the written material. And all your test results are stored in your personal online account, so you can track your progress as you study the material.
And finally, there are dynamic video segments that present common scenarios, to guide you through the practical halacha in each case.
