challah and wine
I had another question about the two table system. What do people do with challah and wine? At first we thought it would be nice to put bottles of wine on each table along with two covered unwrapped challahs. But that puts people who don't want to use unhechshered wine for kiddush or unhechshered challah for hamotzie in an uncomfortable situation of having to go to another table for these preliminary rituals-- or worse it steers people towards sitting at a table with the wine/challah of their preference, such that people who prefer hechshers will cluster together, and people who prefer not hechshers will cluster together. Then we thought that we would put each wine bottle on the proper table and ask everyone to fill their cup (at whatever table they prefer) before we start. With challah we thought that we would leave the wrappers under each challah-- so that they will be identifiable-- and make sure to have two hechshered whole bread things (which can include pita or whatever) at each table. This solution has so far been workable but clunky. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
