==Bracha for seeing a cemetery==
# For seeing a Jewish cemetery the Bracha is Baruch Atta…Asher Yatzer Etchem…Mechaye Maytim. ''ברוך אתה ה' אלוקינו מלך העולם, אשר יצר אתכם בדין ודן אתכם בדין וכלכל אתכם בדין והחיה אתכם בדין, ואסף אתכם בדין, ויודע מספר כולכם, ועתיד להחיותכם ולהקימכם בדין לחיי העולם הבא, ברוך אתה ה' מחיה המתים'' <ref> S”A 224:12, Mishna Brurah 224:17, Piskei Teshuvot 224:10, Yalkut Yosef (vol 3 pg 604) </ref> This Bracha can be made for seeing it through glass and so if one see a cemetery from a car while driving one can make this Bracha. <Ref> Piskei Teshuvot 224:10, Yalkut Yosef (vol 3 pg 605) </ref> Some say that one may make the Bracha even after leaving the sight as long as one is still effected and impacted by it. <ref>Halichot Shlomo 23:26 (in the footnote) writes that if one didn't make the bracha immediately upon seeing the Jewish cemetery, one may make the bracha as long as the sight effects oneself. </ref>
==Bracha for seeing a freind==# Nowadays, the Ashkenazic minhag is not to make a bracha upon seeing a friend after 30 days or after 12 months. <Ref> Halichot Shlomo 23:12, Piskei Teshuvot 225:2 </ref># However, some say Sephardic minhag is to make the Bracha of Shechiyanu even if one was in contact as long as one hasn’t seen them for 30 days, while some disagree. <Ref>Yalkut Yosef (vol 3 pg 605) writes that the minhag is to make both these Brachot under the conditions of S”A. However, Vezot HaBracha (pg 171) quotes Rav Mordechai Eliyahu who says that the minhag is not to make these Brachot nowadays. </ref>
