HaRav Binyamin Kwalwasser from Yeshivat Lev Hatorah taught us that Rabbi Abadi is of the opinion that it is better to say a shorter version of Birkat Hamazon after eating than not to say it at all. (IIRC, R' Kwalwasser said that R' Baruch Simon from YU agrees with R' Abadi regarding this subject.)

My question is: Is this abbreviated form of Bentching available on the Internet, as a PDF file or otherwise?


Here is a link for the Android version of Rav Abadi's Birkat Hamazon. Visit: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cqlsys.birkathamazonhakatzar


The words of Rav Abadi's version can be found as a PDF here (although the vowels are somewhat corrupted) in the text of the Teshuva (Or Yitzchak I OC 59) where he discusses the permissibility of using a shortened version.


A Google search for "birkat hamazon short form" turns up several pages, including this PDF from Harav Ariel Bar Tzadok. (Transliteration only, no Hebrew text.) I don't know who he is, but the page includes contact information.

  • I don't know who he is either, but I have downloaded some of the free MP3 shiurim from his website in the past and after having heard him, I do think that he is a talmid chacham. – Adam Mosheh Jul 22 '12 at 20:44
