Who should say the berachah of the shofar? Only those who blow or those who listen have to do brachah as well?


The custom is that the person blowing the shofar makes the bracha, and has everyone in mind. This is even if already heard the shofar. However when a man who already fulfilled the mitzva, is blowing for women, then one of the women should make the bracha for the others, and not the man.
