2 riddles 2answers

1) The 49th day is the only day to count without a Bracha
2) The 49th day is the only day to count with a Bracha 

Answer: הלכה ולא למעשה

1) The Ben Ish Chai writes " On the 49th day when saying the לשם יחוד before Sefirah, one should skip the words
of שבע שבתות תמימות. If one said it he can't make a Bracha." (only on the 49th day)

2) The Mishna Verura quotes the Halichos Shlomo "women should not make a Bracha for Sefiras Haomer
because a) they tend to forget to complete the counting and b) they don't understand the פירוש המילים." 

If a Bais Yakov graduate counted the first 48 days, there is no reason for her not to make a Bracha on
the 49th day אמבצי


  1. You said: "The Mishnah Berurah quotes the Halichos Shlomoh".

    Are you sure that the Halichos Shlomoh
    was written before the Mishnah Berurah?

    Rambam Rejected Childless Messiah:

    The Biblical Book of Jeremiah, end of chapter 17,

    If the Jewish people observe Shabbat
    [the Jewish Sabbath] then Jerusalem will
    be ruled by Jews forever (verses 24 to 25).

    But if Jews DO NOT observe Shabbat,
    then the Land of Israel [literally, Jerusalem]
    will burn with fire (verse 27, last verse of chapter).

    Based on Jeremiah chapter 17, it seems possible
    that the real reason why so many nations want
    to take Jerusalem away from Jews is because
    many Jews DO NOT honor Shabbat.

    In the Biblical Book of Joshua, chapter 23,
    verses 12 to 13, G*D reveals that:

    If Jews intermarry with non-Jews, then He
    will NOT help the Jews conquer the
    Land of Israel. And even worse, the sin
    \of intermarriage will cause the Jews to
    be driven out from the Land of Israel.

    Based on Joshua, chapter 23, it seems
    possible that the real reason why so many
    nations want to take the Land of Israel
    away from Jews is because many Jews anger
    G*D by intermarrying with non-Jews.


    1. I mistakenly wrote Halichos instead of Shulchan Shlomo. Before R.S.Z. Auerbach there was another Sefer named Shulchan Shlomo He was Rav in Mir.

  2. For #2, if one reason they don't recite a bracha is because they don't understand peirush hamilim, then they still shouldn't count on the 49th day.

    1. If she is a Bais Yakov graduate she understands Pirush Hamilim
