and R. Schneider, ibid., and R. Jehiel Abraham Zilber, Birur Halakha, O.H. sec. 146, no. 2, demonstrate that the contrary view of Resp. Terumat haDeshen is predicated on a misprint (of one letter!) in the standard editions of Piskei haRosh, with the proper reading being “be-asei mi-deOraita” rather than “be-asara mi-deOraita”—as found explicitly in the Oxford-Bodley manuscript of Piskei haRosh, as well as in Tosafot haRosh and Tosafot Rabbeinu Yehuda heHasid, Berakhot 47b, s.v. “Mitsvah.”

As R. Schachter himself comments, supra, note 61 at p. 119, even if a minyan for Parshat Zakhor were biblically required, it is not at all clear that the failure to recite the attendant berakhot would, in fact, impinge upon the fulfillment of the mitsvah. First, the benedictions over the public reading of Parshat Zakhor may be of only rabbinic origin. (See the discussion found in the following sources: Peri Megadim, supra, note 83; Arukh haShulhan, O.H. sec. 47, nos. 3-4; R. Joseph Cohen, Harerei Kodesh, no. 6 on Mikra’ei Kodesh, supra, note 83; Resp. Yabia Omer, III, O.H. sec. 27, no. 11; Resp. Yehave Da’at, I, sec. 85, p. 244). Second, even if the benedictions themselves are biblically mandated, it does not necessarily follow that failure to recite them would prevent one from fulfilling a Parshat Zakhor obligation. See at length R. Abraham Dov-Ber Kahane Schapira, Resp. Devar Avraham, I, sec. 16; R. Tsvi Pesah Frank, Kunteres Mili deBrakhot, Resp. Har Zevi, O.H. II, sec. 1 (printed originally as a preface to Toledot Ze’ev, authored by his brother Ze’ev Wolf Frank); R. Isaac Arieli, Einayyim laMishpat, Berakhot 15a, s.v. “ve-lo bi-vrakha.”
