Q. If one ate karpas and made the required haadama bracha and then was masiach daath and the karpas slipped from his mind and was forgotten. However, as reading the Hagada took a lengthy time, he got hungry and decided to eat some more karpas. Does he have to make a new bracha since he was masiach daath. Or maybe since he had in mind when he made the bracha that it will apply to the maror also, he does not have to make a bracha?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that he does not have to make a new brocho for a number of reasons. Since the leftover karpas was still in front of him, he was not really masiach daas. Besides, it is not uncommon for people to think that they will not eat anymore, and then change their minds, so unless he exited the home or fell asleep, he should not recite another bracha.
