Cumulative kiddush consumption


We have stated that fulfilling the mitzvah of Kiddush involves drinking a two-ounce measure in a brief period of time. Ideally, the one who recites Kiddush should drink this measure. If someone else would drink the measure, though, that would suffice.

According to one view, collective drinking to reach the required total may be sufficient, if the listeners consumed a cumulative two ounces right after Kiddush. However, one should not rely upon this view unlesss no other option is available.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 271:14; Mishneh Berurah 271:72-73)

Have a great day,
