*The Gemara Brachot 54b states: "One who has completed a sea voyage; one who has traveled through the desert; one who has been sick and healed; and one who was imprisoned and freed." ==Bracha== ==Obligation==*According to the Magen Avraham, <ref>OC 219:1</ref> Birkat Hagomel, like the Korban Todah, is non obligatory but rather optional. The Peri Megadim <ref>OC 219:1</ref> argues that it is obligatory. Nevertheless, all poskim urge one to be careful to fulfill this mitzvah given the opportunity. <ref>Chasam Sofer O.C. 51, Minchas Yitzchok 4:11-9</ref> ==Where==*Given that Birkat Hagomel is a public expression of gratitude, it cannot be said in private. ==When== ==Who==
