Mistaken Brocha Achrona


Hi, if I made a brocha acharona by accident (for example, I hadn’t really had a full kzayis so the brocha was unnecessary), do I make a new brocha rishona on more food? Thank you.




Yes, you would make a new bracha rishona on the food. The reason is because reciting the bracha achrona, although you were not required, (nor allowed) to say it, was a declaration that you don’t want to eat anymore. Therefore, it was a break in the meal, and the new meal that you want to eat would need a new bracha.

Best wishes
