Dear Rabbi, thank you for your previous answer. Another question I have now in my studies is that the Torah seems to use the same word to mean both bless and kneel. "Baruch", spelled bet, resh, chaf, in various grammar forms. Is there any obvious connection between these two meanings for the same word? Thanks
If I eat a fruit and say the blessing (“borei pri ha’etz”) for eating fruit, and than open the fridge and decide to eat a different type of fruit, and a few minutes later I choose to eat a third type of fruit: Do I need to say the blessing again before eating each fruit?
Why did my neighbor already begin saying Selichot (special supplications asking forgiveness) at his synagogue, but at our synagogue our Rabbi said we will begin closer to Rosh Hashana, after Shabbat on the first of September? Thank you.
