More on forced mezuman


We have said that if three are eating together and two wish to recite birkat hamazon, the third must remain present for the mezuman.

However: If two are still eating, and one wishes to recite birkat hamazon, he cannot compel them to remain present and respond to his mezuman. Rather, he is obligated to wait for them.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 200:1)

Have a great day,
