Ask the rabbi Halacha Birkat Hamazon - Grace after the Meal

Washing and Benching With Small Amounts

Rabbi Elchanan Lewis25 Iyyar 5766
Question
If one eats only a kzayit of bread, does one wash with a bracha and recite birkat hamazon? Also, if one eats a very small amount of bread, does he wash beforehand (and with a bracha?)
Answer
For Hamotzi: any amount requires a Brachah. (Shulchan Aruch OC 168; 9) For Netilat Yadayim: Less than Kazayit – no need for Netilah More than Kabeitza – Netilah with Brachah Between Kazayit and Kabeitza – Netilah without a Brachah (ibid 158)
