The Berachot on Shavuot Morning

The Berachot on Shavuot Morning
Day: Friday
Date: June 10, 2016
Parshat: Bamidbar
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 494

In memory of Hannah bat Shelomo.

It is very common during the night of Shavuot to drink cups of coffee or tea to help one stay awake. One who drinks a number of cups does not say a new beracha on each one even if there was a significant amount of time that passed between each cup. However, if he left the building then a new beracha is required even if at the time he left there were still people inside drinking.
Our custom is that everyone, even those who stayed awake all night, say all of the morning berachot and the berachot on the Torah. The only exceptions are netilat yadayim and asher yatzar which are not said. One who used the restroom however, does say asher yatzar as usual but not netilat yadayim.

DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
