Baruch Yotzreich,Baruch Oseich, Baruch Koneich...


During Kiddush Levanah we address the moon and say, "ברוך יוצרך, ברוך עושך, ברוך קונך, ברוך בוראך," which are all forms of blessing the moon's creator. This comes from Masechet Sofrim, Chapter 19. Avudraham explains that these words are used because the acronym of the titles used for Gd is יעקב [Jacob].

(Avudraham, Birchat haRe'iyyah, haShevach v'haHodaah)

Have a great day,
