Kiddush

Rav Dovid gives a daily halacha at the Wall Street Synagogue in Lower Manhattan.
This series discusses kiddush, wine, and related issues.
23 Sivan 5768 listen Raisin Wine (2) (16:36)
Halacha l'ma'aseh: there are four requirements that, if met, make raisin wine pri ha-gefen by all opinions.
Sources: OC 202:11; MB 202:56-60
21 Sivan 5768 listen Raisin Wine (1) (15:31)
Is the brachah for raisin wine borei pri hagafen or shehakol?
Sources: OC 202:11; MB 202:54-55
20 Sivan 5768 listen When is wine no longer wine? (14:51)
At some point in mixing wine with other liquids, its brachah changes from borei pri ha-gefen. Just when does that happen?
Sources: OC 202:1; MB 202:7-10
17 Sivan 5768 listen What is wine for the purposes of brachot? (15:14)
Does wine still get a special brachah if it is concentrated? Mevushal? Pasteurized? Mixed with other flavors?
Sources: OC 202:1; MB 202:3-6
16 Sivan 5768 listen Becoming a Chasid for Brachos; The Importance of Wine and Fruit (11:58)
Why does wine get a special bracha? Why does fruit from a tree get a different bracha from other plants?
Sources: Shaarei Teshuva 202:19; OC 202:1; MB 202:1-2
18 Iyar 5768 listen Chinuch: Giving a Child Forbidden Food (14:48)
In some situations, we need not prevent a child from eating something when he shouldn't.
Sources: OC 269:1; MB 269:1-3
5 Nissan 5768 listen B'dieved, Havdala Can be Made on any of the Four Cups (14:04)
If you forget to make up for havdala in the second bracha, you have additional opportunities through the meal, the seder, and beyond. Also: washing hands for kiddush.
Sources: OC 473:1; MB 473:5-9
4 Nissan 5768 listen What if you forget Havdala in the Kiddush on Erev Pesach Motzei Shabbos? (15:43)
If you forget to make Havdala in Kiddush, how do you make up for your ommission?
Sources: OC 473:1; MB 473:4
3 Nissan 5768 listen Havdala and Shehechiyanu in Kiddush on Erev Pesach (15:16)
The Kiddush of Pesach on Motzei Shabbos is special in that it includes both Shehechiyanu and Havdala.
Sources: OC 473:1; MB 473:1,3
Dedicated as a zechut l'ilui nishmat Shaul ben Chana z"l for a refuah shleimah for Breina bas Frieda.
2 Nissan 5768 listen Hallel in the Seder; Kiddush and Hallel in Maariv on Pesach (11:58)
In the middle of the Pesach Seder, we recite Hallel; in the middle of Hallel, we interrupt to eat. How can we interrupt Hallel in the middle? Also: There are two special changes in Maariv for Pesach: many communities recite Hallel, and there is no Kiddush in shul.
Sources: OC 487:3-4; Pesachim 10:1; MB 487:10,16
Dedicated for a refuah shleimah for Breina bas Frieda and Tamar bat Sigalit.
2 Nisan 5766 listen Introduction to the Maggid (49:40)
From kiddush through the start of the maggid.
19 Kislev 5766 listen The Importance of Chanukah Candles (10:15)
If you only have enough money for Chanukah candles or Shabbos candles, which takes precedence? What about candles vs. Kiddush wine?
Sources: OC 671:1; MB 671:1-3; Shabb. 23b; OC 678:1; MB 678:4
