There are four people who are required to say the beracha of Hagomel. They are; one who traveled over an ocean, one who traveled through the desert, a sick person who was bedridden and healed, and one who was released from jail. The common practice is that a child under bar mitzvah who went through one of these dangers does not say this beracha, however, if he wants to he may do so. A person who is required to say the beracha on two counts, such as one who was ill and traveled overseas for treatment, nevertheless says it only once.

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