I Made The Wrong Berachah What Do i Do?

Updated: May 28, 2023

The Daily Halacha Moment - Wrong Berachah 🍲

״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


What do I do if I recited the wrong Beracha on the food being eaten?


One should have proper Kavana (concentration) when reciting a berachah upon eating anything. However what should one do if by mistake recited the wrong berachah?

After the fact, if one by mistake recited mezonot on any food besides water or salt, one has fulfilled one's obligation. [1]

After the fact if one by mistake recited shehakol on any food one has fulfilled one's obligation. [2]

If one by mistake recited the berachah of haadama on bread after the fact one has fulfilled one's obligation since wheat grows from the ground. [3]


[1]. Chaye Adam vol. 1, 58:3; Halichot Olam, vol. 2, p. 92; Yalkut Yosef 206:27 which says that the Torah calls all food "Mazon"; Halacha Berurah 206:7; Igrot Moshe OC 4:40; Ritva Berachot 2:16; Yalkut Yosef 206:25 writes that after the fact Mezonot is effective even for bread.

[2]. Chaye Adam vol. 1, 58:5; Yalkut Yosef 206:3

[3]. Yalkut Yosef 206:25 since we hold of the concept "Safek Berachot LeHakel"; Kesef Mishnah Berachot 4:6; Nishmat Adam 58:3.
