Thursday 3:00-6:00 pm: A truck with a fruit tree is driving around Crown Heights to offer residents to recite the special bracha which can only be recited when seeing a new tree in the month of Nissan.
During the month of Nissan, there is a special bracha one says when seeing a blossoming fruit tree. Today is one of the last chances to make the special bracha for this year.
A truck with a fruit tree is driving around Crown Heights between 3 pm – 6 pm to offer isolated residents a chance to recite the bracha from home.
The bracha said when seeing the tree is as following:
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה’ אֱ-לֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם שֶׁלֹּא חִסַּר בְּעוֹלָמוֹ כְּלוּם וּבָרָא בוֹ בְּרִיּוֹת טוֹבוֹת וְאִילָנוֹת טוֹבוֹת לֵהָנוֹת בָּהֶם בְּנֵי אָדָם.
Blessed are you G-d our G-d, king of the universe, who left nothing lacking in His world, and created within it good creatures and good trees with which He gives pleasure to people.
