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?
Must Vayechulu be said in a Minyan or by Two Jews together?
Dear Rabbi, I became very confused lately when someone said that “ Vayechulu ” at the Friday night davening needs to be said like aidut , which means that two people should say it at the exact same time; then someone said that it should not be said with two people but really you need to say it with ten like kedusha ; then someone said you can even say it with one – just don’t be mechaven for aidut . Then someone said that that’s why Chassidim stand by “ Vayechulu ” when saying Kiddush. What’s really supposed to be done?

Double ring ceremony
Question: I am B’ezrat Hashem going to get married in few weeks to a wonderful girl. We are both Baalei Teshuva and we will B’ezrat Hashem build a beautiful home. There is one issue, our parents insist that we do a double-ring ceremony. They told us is important for the bride to give the groom a ring as well since it shows he is also bound to her. They will be terribly upset if we don’t. I don’t want to cause problems and bad feelings, is there any problem if she gives me a ring afterward just to make them happy?

How to be a witness for a wedding
Question: I was asked to be a witness by my nephew’s wedding the other day. When I was called up to the Chuppah I watched the Chattan give the ring like I was supposed to.

I know that if I was called to testify if they were married, in court, I couldn’t say %100 my nephew married this girl because I never saw her face. Was that Ok?
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.

Question: My nonreligious cousins came to us for a meal and touched the wine I poured for myself in a cup. The wine was not cooked.

Kiddushin with a stolen ring
Question: I am a Baal Teshuva and unfortunately, I had to spend some time in jail. Baruch Hashem, I turned around and did Teshuva. In jail, I made a friend who was a career thief. He also was Chozer Beteshuva with me and he merited getting married last week. He had told me that a number of years ago he robbed a jewelry store and got a number of rings etc. I suspect that he used one of those rings for Kiddushin. Now he stole it from a Non-Jew years ago does that make a difference. Should I say something to my friend or the Rav?

Is it permitted to give to him if nothing else but for a Kiddush Hashem?

The Rav told me don’t worry and left it Was the Rav correct or should I tell the Chatan?
wrong name in a Ketuba
Question: To the Rabbi: I was an Eid- a witness for the Ketubah for my friend Nehorai last night, but I think the Ketuba was passul. Now I know that that is what his friends call him in yeshiva. Before I signed the Ketuba I saw the Mesader Kiddushin wrote HaChatan “Moshe Meir Nehorai.” I have known Nehorai for many years and I know his first name is Moshe, because his family calls him Moshiko, and the Rosh Yeshiva calls him Moshe. However, no one calls him Meir. Yes, he signs his name on official documents Moshe Meir but I thought that was because Nehorai was a strange name and he just put Meir so it would be easier. I don’t think Meir is his real name so maybe the Ketuba is Passul. Should I tell the Chatan?
