Shehekheyanu: The Jewish Blessing of Firsts

By BimBam (formerly G-dcast)

There’s a lot of emphasis in Judaism on stopping to recognize special moments. Some do this in the form of a prayer or a blessing for the first time they are doing something new. Take a moment to learn this prayer, so the next time you find yourself in a first, you'll know what to say.


As part of Ritualwell's partnership with BimBam (formerly G-dcast), we present a series of videos that share personal stories      about Jewish lifecycle events. 

BimBam (formerly G-dcast) is a new media studio making Jewish videos, apps and animated series that are joyful, empowering introductions to Jewish ideas and life for kids & adults.To learn more about BimBam, visit http://www.bimbam.com/

The Lifecycles Project was made possible with generous support from The Koret Foundation, as part of their Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood.


Ritualwell, BimBam, The Reconstructionist Rabbinical College and Jewish Reconstructionist Communities bring you this user-friendly PDF to inspire ritual in your home. Each one-page PDF explains “what” each blessing is used for, “when” to use it, and ideas to inspire creativity in each ritual! Print the PDF, post it on your fridge, share it with your family and friends, and most importantly find ways to bring holiness into your home and everyday life!
