Halacha - Kiddish on Friday Night at Shul
Submitted by Ken  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

The minhag to recite Kiddush in shul Friday night originated at a time when guests frequently ate and slept in shul, then it would have been necessary for an adult to make Kiddush to fulfil their obligation. However for many centuries this has not been the case, and in fact the Shulchan Aruch OC 269 recommends not saying Kiddush in shul at all since Kiddush may only be recited where a meal is being eaten. While the Mishna Berura there 4 writes that the long-standing minhag to recite Kiddush should not be abandoned, I see no problem allowing a minor to recite it.
