Even according to the custom of avoiding interrupting between washing and the blessing of HaMotzi, one need not wash again if one spoke or otherwise interrupted as long as the person remained mindful to keep their hands clean during the interim (Mishna B'rura 166:6, English translation): דע דעיקר דין תכיפה המוזכר בסימן זה הוא רק מצוה לכתחלה אבל בדיעבד ...

The Kitzur Shulchan Aruch in סימן טו - דיני קדיש וברכו וצרוף עשרה says that as long as there are at least 6 people actually answering, you may say Kaddish, as long as there are 10 adult males above Bar Mitzva awake in the room - even if 1, 2, 3 or 4 of them are forbidden from answering kaddish at that moment. סעיף ז': אִם אֵין ט' שׁוֹמְעִין לְהַשְּׁלִיחַ ...

The Maharam Chalawa in the 10th chapter of Pesachim discusses this. He says that even if it were coming down to the end of zman Mincha and you had to stop to daven, it would still not be a hefsek. This is codified by the Shulchan Aruch O.C. 178:6 מי שנזכר בתוך הסעודה שלא התפלל ועמד והתפלל אפילו אם אין שהות לגמור סעודתו ולהתפלל שחייב להפסיק ואי אפשר לו ...

The Kitzur Shulchan Aruch rules that: One may not interrupt between washing and eating, even with doing nothing or walking around. One who interrupts, need not wash again, unless he's become totally distracted from this washing, by doing some [major unrelated] activity or talking a lot. He brings this in סימן מא - הלכות בציעת הפת וברכת המוציא סעיף ...

See the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch Yalkut Yosef in סימן קלט - סדר הקריאה והברכות where he says: יד: מנהגינו פשוט שהמברך ברכה אחרונה אחר קריאת התורה, אינו עונה אמן אחר ברכתו, אף על פי שכל העונה אמן אחר ברכותיו הרי זה משובח, הכא שאני, שהרי מעיקר הדין מותר להפסיק בדברי תורה קודם שבירך ברכה אחרונה. [ילקוט יוסף, הלכות קריאת התורה עמוד צב]. ‏ "From a strict ...

I think the Magen Avraham understands that one is permitted to make a interruption to facilitate the beginning of the meal. So just like the leader can't start eating until he has clarified if his animals have eaten yet and the lack of that knowledge prevents him from starting to eat, so to the Magen Avram allows you to request that food be served to a ...

See the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch in סימן ע - דיני תפלת מעריב, where he teaches us: סעיף ג': מִי שֶׁבָּא לְבֵית הַכְּנֶסֶת לִתְפִלַּת עַרְבִית וּמָצָא שֶׁהַצִּבּוּר עוֹמְדִין לְהִתְפַּלֵּל שְׁמֹנֶה עֶשְׂרֵה, אֲפִלּוּ עֲדַיִן אֵינוֹ לַיְלָה, אֶלָּא מִפְּלַג הַמִּנְחָה וּלְמַעְלָה, מִתְפַּלֵּל עִמָּהֶם שְׁמֹנֶה עֶשְׂרֵה, וְאַחַר כָּךְ כְּשֶׁיִּהְיֶה לַיְלָה ...

The reason being, that there are 2 types of Borei Pri Hagefen. The first type is the classic one: You want to drink wine and you first have to make a Bracha. This is called ברכת הנהנין - a Bracha before enjoying something. The second type is the "Shira" type. The Borei Pri Hagefen is the Bracha we use in that case - we then say other Brachot - and then ...

First, some background information: This question is explicit in the halakhah and only due to a personal minhagh of the Rosh brought down by the Tur (OH 166 - where he re-interprets the gemara to fit this personal custom of the Rosh - see Rabbenu Yoel there) has there been any confusion on the issue. Rambam, Rashi, and the Ba`alei Tosafoth all agree that ...

Your questions address both the idea of omitting as well as including Kaddish. I am providing a partial answer that addresses why Kaddish should be said and how this is related to the concept of Geulah Arichta, as you mentioned. From this Beurei Hatefilah article - bottom of p. 4 citing Raav"n (Rav Eliezer ben Natan, aka Tzafnat Pane'ach) on Brachot siman ...

I can't tell you for sure but here is some info that may help. Concerning the hephsek between the shel yad and the shel rosh, the Ben Ish Chai is stringent not to interrupt for Kadish or Kedusha between the two even when NO bracha is made, such as when putting on Rabbeinu Tam. See his halachos at the end of parshas Vayeira, shana alef, siman 26. So ...
