Interruptions between kiddush and drinking


In the last few days we have discussed volume and time requirements for drinking the Kiddush beverage.

As with every berachah (blessing), there should be no interruption between concluding Kiddush and drinking.

One who recites Kiddush and then interrupts verbally before drinking should simply repeat the one-line blessing for the beverage itself - and not the whole Kiddush - and then drink. Please note that speech which directly relates to the meal is not considered an interruption.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 271:15; Mishneh Berurah 271:75-76)

Have a great day,
