Moriah Gemara Class Discusses Kiddush

In gemara class with Rabbi Kahane, Moriah’s eighth grade girls have been learning the sugya of Ein Kiddush Ela BeMakom Seudah—meaning, kiddush is only valid if it is said in the same place that you are eating a meal. This discussion quickly sparked a debate among the talmidot about how in shul they usually make kiddush in the sanctuary and then serve the kiddush meal in the social hall. The class contacted Rabbi Daniel Goldberg, assistant rabbi of Ahavath Torah, to discuss the issue with him, and ultimately came to the conclusion that one is allowed to make Kiddush in one room and eat in another room, assuming that certain conditions are met. This was an exciting way for the students to see how Gemara learning plays out in daily life. With this deeper understanding of kiddush, the students will certainly appreciate the mitzvah on a deeper level each and every Shabbat.
