Is Saying Good Shabbat enough to Fulfill the Torah Mitzva of Kiddush?
Rabbi, I came to learn in Israel and at Yeshiva we had an argument about the Kiddush Friday night, and some of the really big learners were saying that the mitzva of Kiddush today is only D’Rabbanon since we say beforehand “Good Shabbat” and I was arguing that I know for sure Kiddush is a mitzva from the Torah because my father was careful all the years to use only the big becher Friday night and never the smaller ones that he uses during the day, and he said the reason was because you need “ shiur d’oraissa ”. So maybe you could help me explain to these chevra what’s really right?
Besamim by Havdalah
Question: I had a cold last week and was very stuffy or a few days. When it came Motzei Shabbat time to make Havdalah I wasn’t sure I could say a bracha on the Besamim. At that point my nose somewhat clear but I still could not smell half the time. I told my wife to make the bracha, but could I have made the bracha hoping that I would be able to smell it?

Question: My wife and I always try to be careful to eat Melaveh Malka on Motzei Shabbat. After Havdalah we sit down and wash on the leftover Challah and sing Zemirot.

Convert including his wife or guests in Kiddush or Grace After Meals
A small introduction: In Tosafot on Gemara in Sotah (page 37, side 2), it is explained that the rule of arvut (taking responsibility for one another) that came into being at the time that the Torah was given only included the 603,000 men and children that left Egypt, who took responsibility for each other at the time the Torah was given, but the eruv rav (mixed multitude)who came out of Egypt with them and converted and joined the Jews were not included in this concept of arvut . If the eruv rav who left Egypt with the Jews were not included in arvut, then all the more so it should be obvious that converts who have only recently become Jewish are not included, – see Tosafot there. (Also, one can study Rashi and Tosafot in Niddah page 13, side 2, who seem to differ in opinion). Also, one needs to take in account the viewpoint of Tosafot who holds that converts are not included in arvut. Can one allow a convert to lead prayers or to make Kiddush and include others in their obligation, when the convert has already fulfilled his own prior obligations beforehand (because if he himself all needs to fulfill the obligation, it seems that it would be obvious that he can include others, because there is no need for the concept of arvut , since we have another law of shome’ah kaoneh [one who listens to the blessing, it’s as if he said it himself], but when he himself already fulfilled his own obligation, the law of shome’ah kaoneh is not enough, because he himself has no obligation anymore and without the law of arvut , he cannot say this blessing at all)? (The law of arvut, allows him to say the same blessing again in order to include others). Truthfully, there is a law in Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chaim, (chapter 53, paragraph 19) that a convert is allowed to lead the prayers, and over there the Beit Yosef does not mention any exclusions. If we do hold like the opinion of Tosafot that there is no arvut with converts, if so, this law of yatza motzi (one who fulfills his own obligation can include someone else) could not apply and we could not allow a convert to lead the prayers, because he has fulfilled his own obligation when he said his own quiet prayers, and the repetition of the prayers was fixed in case there are those who can’t read and need someone to pray for them. In the Kehilat Yaakov, he asks, since the Gemara in Kidushin says: Rabbi Chama the son of Rabbi Chanina says: When G-D places his Sanctity, he only places it on Jewish families who can trace their lineage as it says (Yirmiyahu, chapter 31), “So says G-D, at that time, I will act as G-d to all families of Israel” – it does not say to all of Israel but to all families. And they will be for me as a nation – Rabbo Bar Rav Huna says: This is an extra advantage that Jews were given over converts etc.”. If so, how can a convert be included in the necessary 10 needed to be considered praying with a necessary quota of ten. The law of needing to pray is public is because that G-D’s sanctity is only present when there are 10 people (Sanhedrin page 39, first side), and with a convert, since Hashem’s sanctity does not rest on him, it would seem all the other 9 people would lose out. Furthermore, we can ask that if we look in the Rosh (Brachot page 48, first side)who writes that even servants are included in the promise of “I will become holy amongst the Jews” because they are obliged to keep the mitzvot (commandments) like a woman is, then a convert’s level should be higher than the a servant in this matter. He continues to write that therefore, that the fact it’s written that Hashem’s sanctity does not rest on a congregation of converts is not an actual law that applies across the board, but only applies to being able to receive prophecy, as a convert will not become a prophet. According to him, that when the Gemara continues and says that a “congregation of converts is not considered a congregation”, it only refers to the subject of them having a family lineage. Regarding birkat hamazon (Grace after Meals), there are other questions, mainly regarding the actual obligation that a convert has regarding this blessing. According to the Meiri on Gemora Brachot (page 20, side 2), a convert cannot include others via his own obligation to say this blessing. Seemingly, the reason he gives for this is according to words of the Ramban in Bava Basra (page 81, side 1) that a convert cannot say “ al shehinchalta lavoseinu ” (thank G-D for having given the land of Israel to his fathers), because he doesn’t receive a portion of Israel with the rest of the Jews. One can further study what the Minchas Chinuch says regarding this topic. My questions are: Can a convert include his wife or guests when he says Kiddush, Havdalah, and Grace after Meals? What does it mean that Hashem only rests his sanctity on families that can trace their lineage among the Jews?
