Ask the rabbi Halacha Way of Prayer

Mechitza and benching

Question
are men and women allowed to sit together during benching, and if so why is this allowed in the face of having to daven with a seperation?
Answer
A small or close family can sit together. More distant relatives or friends should not sit together during a meal and benching. During davening one needs a separation in order that there be Kedusha. Kedusha does not appear in a place of mixure of men and women. Therefore all agree that there need be a Mechitza during prayer. Rabbi Yitzchak Grinblat
