Q. This Shabbos Erev Pesach, we will be eating our chometz chales on Friday night and Shabbos morning at our back porch. We plan to eat the meal inside at the already cleaned and ready for Pesach dinning room and eating Pesach food. What is the proper way of saying kiddush bemokom seuda (reciting Kiddush at the place where one eats) in such a scenario?
A. Shulchan Aruch rules that if from the place you recite Kiddush you can see the place where yo eat bread and it is in one house (adjacent porch included), it is considered ‘Bemakom Seuda.’
On the Friday – Leil Shabbos Seuda, you may also want to place at least two candles at a spot where they can be seen from where the Kiddush and the Hamotzi are recited.
