EVERYDAY BRACHAS YOU NEED

You need to know the bracha you use for each food before you eat it

Visitors to KosherWoman.com have told us that our Bracha pages
help them out when they are away from their home & at home.

Some are at restaurants & need to know the 'after' bracha for their meal.
They like that they can visit KosherWoman.com via their cell phone
& get the proper bracha

A lot of mothers aren't sure which Bracha to say before you eat each cereal
because there are 2 possibilities
Me'zonos OR Sha'hakol


Others don't don't which Bracha to use after eating the each cereal
because again there are 2 possibilities
Ahl' Hah'michya OR a Borei Neh'faw'shoce

The daily brachas you need are on KW in English, Hebrew & Transliteration
