The timing for Baruch shePetarani


There is a practice of having the father of a boy recite a blessing, "Baruch shePetarani", when his son becomes 13. [There is discussion regarding having the mother recite this, and regarding reciting the berachah for a daughter; perhaps we will return to this at some point.]

The berachah should be recited with the son present, and within 3 days of when the son becomes bar mitzvah.

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:157:1)

Have a great day,
