Subject: Bracha levatala
Message: This actually happened: I'm driving on the highway while eating cake. I decide it's time to say Teffilas haderech but instead of starting with the words "yehi ratzon...", I mistakenly begin with "Baruch ata...." (including the names of hashem). Question: should I finish up the bracha with an al hamichya, or rather just same "baruch shem kavod..." (I originally intended on continuing to eat after I finished the teffilas haderech)?
Thanks for your work.

Reply: There is a Pasuk in Tehillim that says, "Baruch Atah Adonai Lamdenu Chukechah."

So, when you mistakenly say, "Baruch Atah Adonai," you can then say, "Lamdenu Chukechah."


Kovod Harav,
Is it "Lamdenu" or "Lamdeni"? I was always taught it was "Lamdeni"
Reply:  you are correct-Lamdeni. Thanks!
