Etrog for Kiddush/Havdalah Cont.


As follow up, I thought for havdalah drink and the drink for Saturday kiddush, a chamar Medina (such as etrog liqueur) is permitted (not for Friday evening shabbat). Secondly, is the principle of using a mitzvah object for another mitzvah an optional mitzvah, a chiyuv, or merely a minhag?



  1. Personally, I do not think that esrog liquor could be described as “Chamar Medinah”.

    Using something that was used for a Mitzvah for another Mitzvah is a good thing to do but it is not an obligation.
