Intermediate Talmud: Lesson 20: Structure of the Grace After Meals

kal v chomer from bircat hamazon to blessing before you. the chol v chomer works like this: if we are obligated to bless Hashem after we have eaten and now satiated and we have no more of a desire to eat, all the more so should we bless when we are hungry and our desire to eat is very strong.

To Anonymous, Rome At the bottom of the video player, you will see the words "MORE IN THIS PROGRAM." If you want to see any of the other episodes of this program, they are all right there. Just click on the episode you want to see. Once you are on the episode, just look right beneath the video player and you will see the words "Class Handouts." Click on that to download a PDF of the handout for that episode. Reply

When I stop asking G-d any questions, I get 1.000.000 answers and more I�ve never even dreamed of. (G-d " delivers" automatically, in a surprising and amazing way.) It�s acting by NOT acting. Reply
