How long should kiddush take?


Yesterday we learned that the person reciting Kiddush should drink a minimum of two ounces, a measure which is roughly that of a cheekful for a normal person.

There is a time component to this act of drinking, too - one should drink Kiddush at a normal pace. It is generally assumed that two ounces are normally consumed in one or two swallows, in a span of 10 to 20 seconds.

(Mishneh Berurah 271:68)

Have a great day,
