To Fulfill Havdala Requirements

To fulfill the requirement for havdala, each person (not only the mevareich) should:
  • Hear the blessing on wine;
  • Smell the spices; and
  • See the flame.
Note If you do not do so when hearing havdala, you should smell a spice and see a flame later and then say those blessings at that time.
