Founded in October of 2006 (about 12 years and 61 days ago), Brochos.com was designed to ease the typical user's retrieval of Brochos information. Our goal was to create a simple and effective reference guide to Brochos. While the actual website's design has gone through quite a metamorphosis, our goal remains the same today.
In the process of formulating our site, we defined three main acheivements:
We are currently run by a relatively small staff of dedicated individuals who make it their hobby to update the site on a regular basis.
In order to simplify our "reliability" we created a source system. Simply put, every item that enters our database must contain information on where we got that particular Halacha. It is therefore up to the user's judgement on whether that source is reliable according to his or her standards.
We also try to be as comprehensive as possible. If you find that we are missing a specific Shitah in a certain item, please use the "report errors" button to inform us of our omission.
Due to the many standards of transliterating words from Hebrew to English, there is no one correct way to spell ברכות. Variations include brachot, berachos, brachos, brochos, and berakhot. We mostly chose "brochos" because we felt it was a fairly popular way to spell it, and because of domain availability issues.
