Closing Nose for Berachos

In a situation in which one would not be allowed to say a bracha, learn, ect. due to a foul odor, may one just close his nose and then make a bracha.


No, under such circumstances closing one’s nose doesn’t help.

The problem isn’t the actual smelling of the odor, but rather its presence. The presence of the odor means that the place is unfitting for a beracha, and this is irrespective of the fact that the individual cannot smell it.

Best wishes.
