Blessing for the First Time Your Experience Something (Shehechiyanu)

You may want to say this before any fruit you are tasting for the first time this season.

בָּרוּך אַתָּה יי אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶך הָעוֹלָם שֶׁהֶחֱיָנוּ וקְִיְמָּנוּ והְִגִיּעָנוּ לַזְמַן הַזֶה

Barukh ata adonai elohenu melekh ha-olam, she-hechiyanu, v’kiy'manu, v’higi'anu la-z’man ha-zeh

Blessed be You, the One who has kept us alive and sustained us so that we could reach this moment.

Blessing After Eating Various Fruit

ברוך אתה‭ ‬ה‮’‬ א‑להינו מלך‭ ‬העולם, בורא‭ ‬נפשות‭ ‬רבות‭ ‬וחסרונן על‭ ‬כל‭ ‬מה‭ ‬שבראת‭, ‬להחיות‭ ‬בהם‭ ‬נפש‭ ‬כל‭ ‬חי‭, ‬ברוך‭ ‬חי‭ ‬העולמים

Barukh atah Adonai Eloheinu melekh ha-olam, bore n'fashot rabot v'chesronan all kol ma she-barata, l'hachayot bahem nefesh kol chai, barukh chei ha-olamim.

Blessed be You, the One who created so many different living things, all needing each other to make Life interwoven through them all, as one soul. Blessed be the Life of all worlds.
