    Here is your daily art…

    (A poppy seed hamentaschen and Linzer cookie)


    Wow!!! Just learned that ideally the two foods should have separate brachas.

    So I need to give you something else with the two mezonos cookies.

    Here is a can of sardines [###]

    Thank you!


    I recall there being some discussion here recently about that,

    with people saying that’s actually not necessary. What’s your source?

    (I don’t remember where the discussion was. Can anyone point us to it?)

    Inaccurate things we learned as kids

    Read from there on. I actually made an error in that post which Ubiquitin kindly corrected.

    As kids, everyone learns “two brachos” but when I got older, I learned there is no source for that. The Shulchan Aruch speaks of 2 foods which presumably means “two types of foods”.

    As an adult, I learned that there is no source for “2 brachos” and that is one of these misconceptions everyone learns as kids.

    LB, you wrote that it is “better” to do 2 brachos. That is something I never heard. I would love to know your source. Thanks!

    Article by R’ Yair Hoffman copied and pasted from front page of YWN:

    “There is no need for the two different food items to have two separate berachos. This is one of the biggest misconceptions in Hilchos Purim. There is an issue, however, of taking one food item and cutting it in half into two slices. The Aruch haShulchan (OC 695:14) writes that just because one cut it in half it should be considered two foods? Perhaps it is this statement of the Aruch HaShulchan that has caused the two blessing myth to exist. If someone sends another two pieces of meat from two different limbs that tastes slightly different this is considered two foods (Mikraie Kodesh SIman 38).”


    Ahhh!!! Thank you!!!

    I Googled it and saw this question on Chabad in the search results,

    “Why must the mishloach manot be comprised of two foods, each with a separate blessing, like a cluster of grapes and a cookie? Why can’t I just send two items with the same blessing?”

    And didn’t click… lo and behold, the rabbi actually says that it’s a “widespread misconception” (Chabad). Thus, not true.

    Thank you ~ now I know 🙂
