Halacha - Rainbows
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: If I said "oseh maaseh breishit" on a rainbow and then realized my mistake, should I go back and say "zocher habrit..." or was I yotzei bdieved through my bracha?
Answer:

If one mixed up the appropriate berachos of "Oseh Maseh Bereshis" and "She'Kocho U'Gvuraso Malei Olam" on lightning and thunder it is not necessary to repeat them because they are intrinsically the same, but the beracha of "Zocher HaBris" on a rainbow is a different concept and is not covered by either of them. Therefore, you must still say the proper beracha on the rainbow.
