After completing a meal a person has 72 minutes (according to some opinions) to bentch. Once this time has passed he lost his opportunity.

Say that during a meal the rav gives a shiur or you're in the middle of listening to an mp3 shiur or a video shiur, does that prolong the 72 minutes?

This shailah comes up when the rav gives a shiur in shul during seduah shelishit on Shabbat.

    Why do you suggest that would make a difference? – Daniel May 31 '15 at 16:37
  • Daniel I believe Torah has a din of food sometimes - for example you can be yotzeh seduah shelishit with divrey Torah bedieved. – Ani Yodea May 31 '15 at 16:42
  • I believe the halacha is based on how long it takes to digest the meal. So if the shiur slows down your digestive processes, you're in luck. (Also, I don't think that leniency of using divrei torah to fulfill shalosh seudos is widely accepted halachically.) – Loewian May 31 '15 at 17:36
  • @Loewian, I believe it is only utilized when shabbat falls on erev pesach. – Ani Yodea May 31 '15 at 17:42
  • Please edit that bit into your question – Daniel May 31 '15 at 18:35
