Festivals, Sukkot, Blessing on Lulav חגים, סוכות, נטילת לולב

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָׁנוּ בְּמִצְוׂתָיו, וְצִוָּנוּ עַל נְטִילַת לוּלָב:

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments and has commanded us about holding the lulav.

בפעם הראשון שמברך על הלולב מברך גם שהחיינו:

The first time during Sukkot that one makes a blessing on the lulav, one should also bless the following blessing:

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, שֶׁהֶחֱיָנוּ וְקִיְּמָנוּ וְהִגִּיעָנוּ לַזְמַן הַזֶּה:

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who has granted us life and sustenance and permitted us to reach this season.
