Kiddush on Bread

Can one make Kiddush on bread?


Bedieved, when one has no wine, one can make kiddush on bread (Shulchan Aruch 271:12; Rema 272:9; this is based on the rulings of most rishonim).

Poskim write that even somebody who prefers bread to wine should not make kiddush on wine lechatchilah (see Mishnah Berurah, Biur Halachah 272:9).

  1. I like bread or matzah, but I don’t like wine or grapejuice. Can I make lechatchila Kidush on bread or matzah?

    1. Yes but only for the night kiddush.
