Tzitzit

24.07.17

Question

Dear Rabbi, If I put on tzitzit and forgot to say the blessing, can I still say it after the fact as I intended on performing the mitzvah of tzitzit, and would the tzitzit be kosher?

Thank you,
Pinchas

Response

Hello,

Since you put on the tzitzit in order to fulfill the mitzvah of tzitzit, the tzitzit are kosher even though you didn’t explicitly say you were doing so, for that purpose.

All the best,
