Shabbos Bulletin Parshas Shemini (Parah) 5776

Tefilla Halacha

If there is a bris taking place on Shabbos…

(just thought I’d discuss that today – no special reason)

…the berachah over wine at the bris may be reckoned for Kiddush IF:

  • Whoever wants to be yotzeh with the berachah has in mind to be yotzei the mitzvahs Kiddush;
  • The person making the berachah has in mind to be motzie them with the berachah and the mitzvahs Kiddush; and
  • Either cake or wine must be eaten or drunk for b’mokom seudah.
