Forced Mezuman, Part I


If three men who are eating together are eating food which requires a mezuman [a group-recited birchat hamazon], and two of them decide to conclude their meal, the third must remain present for their mezuman recitation.

The third should stop eating while they recite the mezuman formula, but even if he continues to eat, and he does not respond to their words, they still fulfill their obligation.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 200:1; Mishneh Berurah 200:3)

Have a great day,
