2017 Erev Rosh Hashanah

Classical rabbinic Judaism includes a directive and formula for Jews to recite 100 blessings every day.

Given that the weekday Amida contains 19 blessings and given that the traditional Jew recites this prayer three times every day, that already gets you to 57.

Of course there are many additional blessings included in other daily prayers plus, since most of us eat every day, there are the blessings that precede and follow our meals and snacks.
