Mini Booklet of Brachot
What educators are saying
When we acknowledge G‑d as the source of all sustenance, we express our gratitude. The Birkat ha'nehenin (blessings of pleasure over food) includes 6 prayers we say before we eat. Individually, they highlight the main ingredient of a meal. As a result, we are more mindful of the foods we eat and develop a deeper appreciation for their sources.
This decorative mini booklet includes a cover page, plus 6 colorful pages with images that help associate the food category with its blessing.
- the cover
- blessings before a meal
Assembling the mini booklet of blessings is easy.
1. Cut out the pages
2. Staple them together
BONUS GAME: Race to Amen
Students will learn how to recite the blessings through repetition.
Students will learn that there are six different blessings for food consumption.
Students will be able to identify the blessing over a meal.
You will receive:
1. Race to "Amen" Gameboard
2. Printable cube template, in lieu of dice (optional)
3. A Reinforcement Worksheet
The goal of the game is to be the first to say "Amen". Through the luck of the die, students alternate reading and shading in the corresponding words. The first player who can roll and read one entire blessing, wins!
Repetition is key to learning tefillot. If your students are already comfortable with "בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם", they can begin after "הָעוֹלָם". However, they must still recite the phrase as part of the prayer. Because this will reduce playing time, I suggest making extra copies so students can play multiple rounds.
