In the blessing of Havdalah, are all the phrases me’akev? If one missed hearing one of them (such as he missed hearing “bein Yisroel lo’amim” or “bein yom hashviii” etc., does he need to make Havdalah again? Or do we say that he is still yotzi as long as he heard Baruch ata Hashem Elokeinu Melech Haolam hamavdil…. and the Baruch ata Hashem hamavdil…. at the end?


If he missed any part of the main bracha he was not yotza, since the whole bracha is meakev.


Shgiyos Mi Yavin 44-55, from M:B 213-19.

  1. But what is the “main” part of the bracha? Seemingly as long as heard “Baruch ata Hashem Elokeinu Melech Haolam Hamavdil bein kodesh l’chol” at the beginning, and he also heard the chasima, he is yotzi?
