Birkas Hamazon for water


Parshas Hashavua עקב

ואכלת ושבעת וברכת    

All he did was drink one glass of plain water
& therefore he needs to Bentch ברכת המזון.


According to Harav Hagaon R.Ch. Kanievsky Zt"l,
If someone was thirsty at the end of his meal, and
waited to drink water till after ברכת המזון, he must
Bentch again ברכת המזון * (דאורייתא)


Based on the מרדכי who holds if you are thirsty
at the end of the meal and Bentch then your Benching
was only מדרבנן.

Therefore, Reb Chaim holds, after you Bentched if you
drink a glass of water you are now מחויב מן התורה 
to Bentch(again)
The first Bentching doesn't count since it was only
a דרבנן Bentching.

Mori V'Rabi Harav Hagaon R. Shlomo Miller Shlita 
argues on Reb Chaim
and holds there is no need to repeat the ברכת המזון

after drinking the water.


*see Rema O.Ch. 197:4
