From the Rav’s Desk: Bnei Bris in Bentching

Question: [Wednesday, 16th Kisleiv 5781]

I work in an office with goyim and would like to know what I should say in Bentching when it comes to the parentheses (Bnei Bris) by the Harachaman’s. Should I say it because there are Gentiles around or should I not say it being that we’re not eating together?



You are to recite Bnei Bris whenever there other Gentiles in the room irrelevant of whether they have joined you for your meal.
