The Concept of Af All Pi Sheyatza Motzi

The Concept of Af All Pi Sheyatza Motzi
Day: Wednesday
Date: June 29, 2016
Parshat: Shelah
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 213

On Shabbat it is permissible for a person to say kiddush for others even if he already said kiddush on his own or heard it elsewhere (Y"Y O"H: 271). This concept is called "Af all pi shayatza, motzi" meaning, even though he already fulfilled his own obligation, he can still fulfill others' obligations. This is only the case with regards to berachot on mitzvot. However, regarding berachot of praise to Hashem, such as the berachot of Kriat Shema, thunder, lighting, or gomel etc. once one has said the beracha, he cannot subsequently say it for others.
