Updated: May 31, 2023

The Daily Halacha Moment - Amount Needed to Be Drunken 🥤

״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


How much does one need to drink in order to be obligated in reciting a Berachah Achrona?


Yesterday we discussed how much one needs to eat and in what period of time in order to be obligated to recite the correct berachah achrona.

What about beverages? How much does one need to drink and what period of time does it need to be fully drunken by?

In order for one to be obligated in reciting a berachah achrona on a beverage one needs to drink a "Revi'it" (around 3 oz) and one should try to drink it in one gulp. [1] However; if not, one can be lenient up to 2-3 gulps immediately one after another. Some also say within the time frame of a few gulps. [2]


[1]. Yabia Omer 5:18(2); Chazon Ovadia, Berachot pg. 259-260; Or Letzion 2:14:17;

Shaar Hatziyon 210:11.
