The Afikoman

The Afikoman
Day: Friday
Date: April 3, 2015
Parshat: Shemini
Yalkut Yosef: 477

Ideally the Afikoman should be eaten before hatzot and while leaning. However one who didn't lean and is too full to eat it again, or if he remembered only after birkat hamazon, does not need to eat the Afikoman again. If he remembered before birkat hamazon and he's not too full, he must eat the Afikoman again while leaning. After eating the Afikoman one may not eat anything at all. If after eating the Afikoman but before birkat hamazon one ate something else, he must eat the Afikoman again. After birkat bamazon he does not need to eat it again. It is permissible to drink water and other non alcoholic drinks though. The only exception is the last two cups of wine, which of course, are permissible to drink. If one needs, he can also drink coffee or tea to help stay awake to study and discuss Yetziat Mitzrayim.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
