lefty In the shiur you mention that the a lefty would pass from the left hand to the right and back to the left according to chabad custom, I have heard that a lefty picks up with the right in the middle of the cup and then places it down on his left hand as opposed to how the righty does it?

quesitons Thank you. If someone didn't go to shul, do the melachim still enter? If someone is not awake for the night kiddush, don't they make the nighttime kiddush at day instead of the daytime kiddush? On Yom Kippur, since we don't make kiddush to sanctify the Shabbos, are ladies yotzai with just lighting or do they have to daven Maariv with the mention of Shabbos? Is there a concept of others besides the one making kiddush to drink directly from the kiddusch cup? What is one supposed to look at when one says the brocho of the wine during kiddush - the wine or the candles? Is it better to sit for kiddush or stand up? Reply
