Blessings When Drinking Water


Prayer before drinking water:

If I have a water bottle I take with me throughout the day, do I do the blessing once? Or do I do the blessing every time before I drink?

Thank you!



  1. As long as you are drinking at least every twenty-nine minutes, it is enough to make one blessing at the beginning and one after-blessing at the end. If you know that more than half-an-hour is going to pass before you drink again, you should make an after-blessing over what you have drunk so far (assuming that it is enough for an after-blessing) and then make another Shehakol blessing when you drink again.
