May I pass the wine?


Normally, one may not skip the opportunity to perform a mitzvah (אין מעבירין על המצוות). So if the person who makes kiddush passes a cup of wine to someone, may that person pass it to someone else?

It is possible to contend that one may not pass that cup of wine to someone else. However, where the host specifically asks that the cup of wine be passed to a particular person, or where there is a halachic reason to pass the cup to that person (such as to an honoured guest), then there is no problem in passing it.

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:191:2)

Have a great day,
