Halacha - chumrahs
Submitted by Scott  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: I heard that there's a mishna which says that a person should not take all the chumrahs or heterim for a given halacha. Is that so? Or is it praiseworthy to consider all the chumrahs when deciding a halacha. Thus, regarding kiddush, since there is a view that kiddush requires hamotzei for "makom seudah" a person would make sure to make kiddush again at home with bread even though there was a kiddush in shul.

It is impossible to make generalizations regarding chumros and kulos, each sugya and situation needs to be evaluated by a Rav.

Regarding Kiddush without bread, it is a very small minority opinion that says you would not be yotzei on mezonos. However, if you want to be stringent for that opinion, you should not eat at the shul Kiddush at all, as since you would be eating before fulfilling the obligation of Kiddush, it would be like eating without Kiddush. In any event, you would say Kiddush again at home of other members of your family had not yet heard Kiddush.
