Halachos of Daily Living

To be counted towards the one hundred brachos, must one personally recite the bracha, or is it sufficient to respond amen to another person’s bracha?

It depends on the bracha.

If the bracha is obligatory (such as Kiddush or Hamotzi) and a person fulfills the requirement to recite the bracha by hearing it from another, the bracha can be included in a person’s daily tally of the one hundred brachos obligation.

If a bracha is non-obligatory and a person hears the bracha from another and answers amen (such as a bracha on an apple that another party is reciting), it does not count towards the one hundred brachos.
