Ger Making Brocha of Shelo Asani Goy

Question:
Is there an accepted minhag concerning if a ger can say the brocha of shelo asani goy?

Answer:

The psak for a convert is in accordance with the Rama, that he should not make the bracha of “shelo asani goy”. See O:C 46:4 and the Mishnah Brura there, that other variations of this bracha for a convert are also a subject of debate ans should be trated as a safek bracos lehakel. The Kaf Hachaim suggests the convert should make the bracha of “shelo asani goy” without “shem umalchus”. While there is no obligation to do so, this would be a commendable practice.
