The berachah upon seeing graves


There is a berachah which is recited upon seeing graves of Jews [after not seeing graves of Jews for thirty days]. This berachah is recited when seeing graves even if one is outside the cemetery, but not simply upon perceiving that there is a cemetery in that space.

A blind person would not recite this blessing, even when standing in the cemetery.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:37:10)

Have a great day,
