Mezuman interrupts a meal


One who responds to a mezuman but intends to keep eating may do so without a new hand-washing or berachah.

However, one who decides to stop eating, and then resumes his meal, must wash again for bread and must recite a new berachah upon the food. There is some debate about the berachah upon washing, though; consult your local authority, please.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 200:2; Mishneh Berurah 200:7; Shaar haTziyyun 200:9)

Have a great day,
