Waiting after kiddush before eating


One should not have a long gap between kiddush and the start of one's meal; kiddush is supposed to be part of the meal.

1. Where the wait is necessary because of an element of the meal - such as where many people need to wash their hands in the netilat yadayim rite - then there is no problem.

2. Even if one did have a substantial wait, kiddush is still valid. [Rivivot Ephraim does not present a maximum. - MT]

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:199)

Have a great day,
