Q. I’m a frum physician working in a hospital… (See question 2616 above). I probably will have to be working in the hospital, during the first or even the second seder this week. I’ll probably reach home by uber around 11.00 pm. My wife will make kiddush for the children and I will join them later on.
I will eat something during the afternoon before Yom Tov starts, but I cannot be many hours without drinking something. What is the right procedure to do on that special night?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that you should take with you to the hospital a bottle of grape juice and at the proper time recite kiddush of Yom Tov and drink a second extra cup of juice, so it will be considered bemakom seuda or in the place of eating a meal. You should have in mind that this cup will be the first of the four cups of wine that one has to drink during the seder night.
When you go home, you may join your family and drink the remaining three cups.
