Brachos 45 – ברכות מה

The Gemara concludes that one cannot recite Zimun retroactively (after one has already recited birchas hamazon).  Why would one think he may do so – since zimun is merely a form of Birchas hamazon, which he has already recited?

One thought on “Brachos 45 – ברכות מה

  1. Zimun is a separate part of birchas hamazon with a different source pasuk. If it’s thought of as a mideoraysa because of its pasuk, then perhaps it has a different chiyuv as well. Perhaps Merimar was saying that, in fact, it’s not a mideoraysa and therefore once you have lost the opportunity there is no requirement to go back and say it.
