BENDICION FINAL BORE NEFASHOT

Como hemos visto oportunamente, existen alimentos cuya bendición final es “nefashot”, se trata de alimentos como por ej. Verduras frescas, una zanahoria o frutos que no pertenecen a las especies con que fue bendita la tierra de Israel o bebidas.

El texto de esta bendición es: Baruj Ata…..Melej Haolam Boré Nefashot Rabbot Vehesronam Al Kol Ma Shebarata, Lehahayot Bahem Nefesh Kol Hay Baru Hay Haolamim.

Rabi Yosef Hayim z”l (el Ben Ish Hay) explicó que el texto de esta bendición, según la Cabbalá hace referencia a aquellos espíritus que reencarnan en distintos estratos de este mundo y por medio de la bendición podemos rectificarlos y hacer que retornen a su mundo espiritual.

Sin embargo, nuestro maestro Rabi Ovadia Yosef z”l explicó la bendición en su aspecto mas literal y es el siguiente

D-os creó las almas y sus necesidades básicas, como el pan y el agua para poder subsistir. Pero también creó otro tipo de alimentos que aún cuando no son vitales ayudan al hombre a desarrollarse y vivir cómoda y placenteramente.

Por ello la bendición culmina diciendo “Baruj Hay Haolamim”, o sea bendito el Eterno.

Dichoso el hombre que se concentra en el texto de las bendiciones que pronuncia y eleva así su alma.
