Birkat Hamazon - Benching || בִּרְכַּת הַמָּזוֹן || Grace After Meals

בִּרְכַּת הַמָּזוֹן is the בְּרָכָה recited after eating any meal in which bread has been eaten.

Quick Facts

  • The only בְּרָכָה mentioned in the חֻמָּשׁ is בִּרְכַּת הַמָּזוֹן. This בְּרָכָה is recited after eating bread. 
  • The בִּרְכַּת הַמָּזוֹן contains a number of paragraphs which talk about: 
    • How G‑d feeds humanity; 
    • The special nature of אֶרֶץ יִשְׂרָאֵל.
    • Jerusalem.
  • Although this is the only בְּרָכָה mentioned in the חֻמָּשׁ, however, the Rabbis said that if Hashem wants us to thank Him after we have eaten, how much more so should we thank Him and say a בְּרָכָה before we eat. They therefore instituted בְּרָכוֹת before eating food. 
  • Furthermore, they said we should make a בְּרָכָה before we do a מִצְוָה.
