Halocho #389 - the Bracha on bad news

Upon hearing really bad news one says the Bracha of Dayan Ha'Emet - the True Judge.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה' אֱלקֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם
דַּיַּן הָאֱמֶת
This is the Bracha one says when a close relative dies. If the person who died isn't a close friend or relative, one says the abbreviated form:
בָּרוּךְ דַיַּן הָאֱמֶת
Source: Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 59:6 - Danny Wednesday, 22 Av 5769
Tamar bat Naama (Bamberger) - תמר בת נעמה passed away yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon. Baruch Dayan Ha'Emet.
