Efficacy of the Havdalah recited in shul


We have been learning about Havdalah.

The default assumption is that one does not intend to fulfill his Mitzvah of Havdalah with the Havdalah recited in the synagogue, but rather to perform Havdalah at home with his family.

One who actively intends to fulfill the mitzvah with the synagogue Havdalah, though, does fulfill his obligation that way.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 296:7; Mishneh Berurah 296:33)

Have a great day,
