According to the opinions which require Mechitzos by weddings.

Why isn't there a requirement to have Mechitzos by any other Seudas Mitzvah?

For example, why isn't there a requirement that one have a Mechitza by a Shabbos Table, a Seder, etc.

  • similar to judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/9480/… but not equal. My question is only valid according to the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch and the Beis Shmuel who prohibit mixed seating by a Chasuna – Shmuel Brin Feb 20 '12 at 5:21

    Also can you edit in references for the Kitzur and Beit Shemuel? – Double AA Feb 20 '12 at 5:22
  • @DoubleAA no, at the Seudah. That's why it says "any other Seudas Mitzvah". – HodofHod Feb 20 '12 at 16:40

    @ ShmuelBrill, Btw, I read "Beis Shmuel" and my first thought was "Sam's Club?". – HodofHod Feb 20 '12 at 16:46

There is a difference between a a private Shabbos Seuda and a wedding. By a private Seuda there usually is only family, however at a wedding you also invite others. Incidentally the Chasidim when they have a Mitzva Tantz and only the family remains, they take away the Mechitza. And when they make a Shabbos Sheva Brachos where there are others present back comes the Mechitza.
