Drinking sitting down


We have been learning about Havdalah.

One should sit down to drink the cup from Havdalah, even if one recited Havdalah itself while standing (as many customarily do).

This rule applies to all Mitzvot which involve consumption, such as Kiddush. Some explain that the reason we sit is in order to give the Mitzvah a sense of permanence.

(Mishneh Berurah 296:6)

Have a great day,
