Latest Question & Answer

I drink some of my coffee from my travel mug before I leave my home. Then I continue to drink it in the car. Do I say borei nefashos prior to leaving the house and make a new brocha?

This issue is a bit of a controversy. According to Rav Moshe Feinstein, ztl, if you intended to take your drink with you or normally do so, no new berachos are required. [ED.

This question has been answered by a Star-K Rabbi]
