1129 Klal 57 Siman 9-10: Order of Brachos 14 – Fully Grown Fruits, Covering the Bread During Kiddush

We are beginning siman 9. The Chayei Adam writes that the advantage of shivas haminim only applies when the fruits are fully ripe, because the Torah’s praise of Eretz Yisroel through these fruits applies specifically when they are fully grown. The Chayei Adam writes of an example prevalent to his time in which pickled olives …

1128 Klal 57 Siman 8: Order of Brachos 13 – Items Which Have Two Brachos 8

We are continuing in siman 8 and have a few points to clarify. We have learned that Chazal understand oats and rye to be subtypes of barley, and spelt to be a subtype of wheat. Therefore, we learned (shiur 1127) that an item made from spelt precedes an item made from rye or oats. We …

1126 Klal 57 Siman 7-8: Order of Brachos 11 – Items Which Have Two Brachos 6

We are beginning siman 7. We learned that the Chayei Adam understands that when two items are of the shivas haminim, their order in the pasuk will indicate the order of their brachos, regardless of all other considerations. Based on this thought process, we learned that the Chayei Adam holds that olives would precede barley, …

1125 Klal 57 Siman 6: Order of Brachos 10 – Items Which Have Two Brachos 5

We are beginning siman 6. In siman 6, 7 and 9, the Chayei Adam works with an assumption which impacts the halachos of these simanim. We will learn that the Mishnah Berurah argues on this assumption. The Magen Avraham grapples with the idea that, on the one hand, we have a concept that the closer …

1123 Klal 57 Siman 5: Order of Brachos 8- Items Which Have Two Brachos 3

We are beginning siman 5. The Chayei Adam summarizes the halachos we have learned thus far. When two items are birchoseihen shavos (the same bracha), and the rules of precedence apply, if neither is of the shivas haminim, the chaviv takes precedence. If one of them is shivas haminim, it takes precedence, even if it …

1122 Klal 57 Siman 4: Order of Brachos 7- Items Which Have Two Brachos 2

We are continuing in siman 4. In the beginning of the siman, we learned the opinion of the Chayei Adam that when one has foods of two different brachos in front of them, they only follow the seder brachos above all other considerations, in order to make the brachos in their order of specificity. No …
