This is discussed in the Talmud (Shabbat 114) and the Rambam rules (Shabbat 5:21) that no Havdallah is recited after Shabbat when Yom Kippur falls on Sunday.

According to the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch (21:6), you'd say it in the second prayer, not in the first. אם שכח ערבית במוצאי שבת מתפלל שחרית שתים ואומר בתפילת התשלומין אתה חוננתנו לפי שמעיקר התקנה צריך להבדיל בתפילה If one forgot to say Maariv on Motsa'ei Shabbat, he prays two Shemoneh Esreis in Shacharit and says "Atah Chonantanu" in the compensatory ...

Rav Eliyashiv psak is quoted in Ashrei Haish Perek 13:10(pg. 135) saying that one does not need to close the electric by the bracha of aish,and this is what he did in his own home.

First of all, the specific language of what you've heard, that "as the berachah on the havdalah candle is made..." is not necessarily correct; either the bracha should be before the checking, or the fingernail-checking should be done before the blessing, but not at the same time. (As to which one comes first: R. Moshe Feinstein, in Igros Moshe O.C. 5:9 ...

Four questions is a nice, traditional number :) Is there any minhag to fill a cup of wine to the point where it overflows? Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 86:7 כשמוזג את הכוס להבדלה, ימלאו על כל גדותיו עד שישפך קצת ממנו, וזהו לסימן ברכה When pouring the Havdala cup, they fill it to overflowing until a little bit spills out, and this is a good sign. I don't ...

This seems to parallel לא יאונה לצדיק כל און - No wrong shall be caused for the righteous, certainly according to Rashi (there on the verse and other places) that this applies to all sin, but even according to Tosfos that this only applies to food or things which are degrading for the Tzaddik, it is certainly appropriate to ask for that protection. Note in ...

The only source that I could find is Likutei Maharich volume2 - page 82 where he mentions that our Minhag is that all those who hear Havdalla say Layehudim out loud. He does not give a reason for this Minhag.

Rav Sternbuch in Tshuvos Vnhanhagos 2:134 brings down that there were gedolim who didn't do besamim by havadalah because of Hanaah(pleasure) problems for bracha.This also comes from the gemara in brachos 53 and Rishonim.

Many use the popular melody by Debbie Friedman. Its simple, easily found in shireinu or other sources and has lots of 'lai-lai-lai" for those who might not know or remember the words or are too lost in thought about the young professional across the room to have an kvanah...

These quote are all from Rambam's Mishne Torah, so it might be different according to other authorities. The first thing to determine is when Shabbat ends: הלכות שבת פרק ה,ד משתשקע החמה עד שייראו שלושה כוכבים בינוניים, הוא הזמן הנקרא בין השמשות בכל מקום; והוא ספק מן היום, ספק מן הלילה, ודנין בו להחמיר, בכל מקום. ולפיכך אין מדליקין בו; והעושה ...

according to some opinions (the riff rosh (yuma daf pay aleph omud beis) and others it is a torah obligation (midioraisah) (and acording to all others it is at least a rabinic obligation (midirabanan) that a person must add "from his own time" to the shabbos both in the beginning and the end (the term for this is called tosefes shabbsos) in other words on ...

Friday night -- either wine, or challah. Shabbos morning kiddush, as well as havdalah -- better with wine. Acceptable with any "beverage of the land." (How do you balance "better" vs. "acceptable"? AYLOR.) Beer definitely works as "beverage of the land." Hard liquor -- there's a discussion about how much you'd have to drink. Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef quotes some ...

Firstly, forgiveness from accidental sins far predates the havdallah,we find in Psalm 90, .שגיאות מי יבין, מנסתרות נקני "Who can discern shogegim, cleanse (?) me from hidden sins." In fact, the Thirteen Attributes of Mercy include נושא...וחטאה "Who forgives...accidental sin." Presumably, while one could be careful enough to avoid such sins, in practice ...

Most of the shi'tot were covered in other answers While the Ramo recommended giving the wine to a child, the Mishna Brurah ((651:70)) pointed out that this cannot just be “any child.” The child utilized must have reached the age of training for brachos and will drink the proper amount, but not yet reached the age of training to mourn over Yerushalayim. ...
