After What To Say HaGomel

Say ha'gomel after:
  • Crossing the ocean (far enough away that you cannot see the shore);
  • Crossing a desert by any means except flying;
  • Getting out of jail; or
  • Recovering from a serious illness.  
In addition, say ha'gomel anytime a catastrophe has been avoided, such as a vehicle crash. Consult a competent halachic authority in these cases.
