After-Blessings: Changing Location: Inside Vehicle, Outside Vehicle, Return

Situation You are traveling (driving, riding in a bus, etc.), and you stop and get out of the vehicle in order to eat part of a meal or snack:
What To Do
  • If, when you said the fore-blessing, you had consciously intended to return to the vehicle and continue eating either along the way or at the next stop, you may say the after-blessing wherever you are when you finish eating.
  • If, when you said the fore-blessing, you had not consciously intended to return to the vehicle and continue eating while traveling, it is assumed that you will continue to eat and you do not need to say a new fore-blessing.
  • If you intended NOT to continue eating in your car or along the way, you need to say a new fore-blessing in the vehicle.
