The Requirement to Say One Hundred Berachot Daily

The Requirement to Say One Hundred Berachot Daily
Day: Sunday
Date: December 27, 2015
Parshat: Shemot
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 202

There is a hiyuv incumbent on every person to say one hundred berachot every day, even on Shabbat and Yom Tov. As is usually the case, the count begins from evening to evening, not from morning to morning. During the week this is fairly easy since the amidot have nineteen berachot each, whereas on Shabbat there are only seven. Therefore, it is especially important on Shabbat for a person to be mindful and count in order to reach the goal of one hundred berachot. If a person can not reach one hundred, he can count the blessings that were made on the Torah and the Haftarah reading as part of his berachot.
