Halacha - Kiddush Bimakom Seudah
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

The sefer V'Zos Habracha p85 quotes Reb Shlomo Zalman Auerbach zatzal and Rav Elyashiv yblct that one should say a beracha achrona before leaving the Kiddush. Since there will be a break in time between the Kiddush and seuda the obligation to say the beracha commences, and one should not delay reciting a beracha that one is obligated in.

Halacha - Sushi
Submitted by ilan  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

Generally speaking we say that mezonos is always the ikar, however rice is an exception to this rule since it is not one of the 5 grains. I have never seen a sushi roll, but from what I have heard it sounds like the fish is the primary part of the food and the rice is of secondary importance. The name would lend weight to this description. Therefore, it seems to me it should be shehakol.

Halacha - tzniyus
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Yes you may, provided your genitals are covered, and for a man if there is a division such as a belt between the heart and the genitals, but not wearing just a loose robe. This is called "the heart seeing the erva", but it is not an issue for a woman.

Halacha - beracha achrona of coffee
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

Mishna Berura brings a machlokes if one must drink a hot beverage in the minimal time span that one would normally drink a revi'is in or if it is sufficient to drink it  in the normal time span for sipping hot beverages. He concludes that one should not say a beracha achrona if it was only sipped, but he concludes that the best way to avoid the problem is to leave over a revi'is of the coffee etc until it cools enough that it you can drink it at one time, and then a beracha achrona is recited. However, some allow one to recite a beracha on any hot liquid that was sipped normally, and one who follows that opinion has many Poskim to rely on.

Halacha - Rainbows
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

If one mixed up the appropriate berachos of "Oseh Maseh Bereshis" and "She'Kocho U'Gvuraso Malei Olam" on lightning and thunder it is not necessary to repeat them because they are intrinsically the same, but the beracha of "Zocher HaBris" on a rainbow is a different concept and is not covered by either of them. Therefore, you must still say the proper beracha on the rainbow.

Halacha - Bracha Shehechiyanu
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The beracha of Shehechiyanu is mentioned numerous times in the Gemora. It is recited either on performing a Mitzva that occurs periodically, or on a Yom Tov, or on hearing good tidings. While certainly a joyous occasion, a Bar Mitzva does not meet any of the criteria delineated by Chazal and therefore we do not say Shehechiyanu. However, some opinions hold that a boy does say this beracha the first time he puts on tefillin, since this is the performance of a Mitzva that he has never done before and is therefore considered periodical.

Halacha - Brachot
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

You are right that the beracha of Oseh Maaseh Bereshis is not limited to salty oceans and would also apply to any impressively large body of water. If you saw one such lake and than a different one that created new inspiration you would say a new beracha even within 30 days of the first body of water, and therefore you would not restart your count for the first lake.

Halacha - new clothes
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

On new clothes that are special enough that one is excited to purchase them the beracha of shehecheyanu is recited. We do not say this beracha on shoes or other leather garments.

The proper time to recite this beracha is immediately on purchasing the article of clothing if it is bought ready to wear. However if the object needs adjusting, then the beracha is recited the first time it is worn.

Halacha - Child Birchas HaTorah
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: You should be proud of a son who wants nothing else but to learn as soon as he wakes up. A 6 year old child may learn even without saying Birchas HaTorah since the issue is at most chinuch.

Halacha - Shehecheyanu on New Fruit
Submitted by Rivky  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

As long as you are still in the middle of eating the fruit, you may still say shehechiyanu. However, if you finished all the pieces of this type of fruit that you intended to eat at this sitting and only afterwards remembered to say shehechiyanu, it would be too late to take an additional piece and the beracha would be lost.

Halacha - Bracha
Submitted by Buri Rosenberg  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Mezonos. Grains from the 5 species are always considered to be of primary importance when added for flavor or creating a sensation of fullness even if they are a minority in quantity. The exception would be when they are clearly of secondary importance such as flour added to gefilte fish to make it stick together.
