Mishnah: Berakhot Chapter 6
Read, translate, and explain the Mishnah's rules of blessings on food.
This sixth chapter of Berachot is one of the most often studied chapters in school for a good reason: it's super practical. The rules of blessings on food impact our daily life and are one of the most frequent ways we show our devotion to God and our faith.
