Is Saying Good Shabbat enough to Fulfill the Torah Mitzva of Kiddush?
Rabbi, I came to learn in Israel and at Yeshiva we had an argument about the Kiddush Friday night, and some of the really big learners were saying that the mitzva of Kiddush today is only D’Rabbanon since we say beforehand “Good Shabbat” and I was arguing that I know for sure Kiddush is a mitzva from the Torah because my father was careful all the years to use only the big becher Friday night and never the smaller ones that he uses during the day, and he said the reason was because you need “ shiur d’oraissa ”. So maybe you could help me explain to these chevra what’s really right?

Must Vayechulu be said in a Minyan or by Two Jews together?
Dear Rabbi, I became very confused lately when someone said that “ Vayechulu ” at the Friday night davening needs to be said like aidut , which means that two people should say it at the exact same time; then someone said that it should not be said with two people but really you need to say it with ten like kedusha ; then someone said you can even say it with one – just don’t be mechaven for aidut . Then someone said that that’s why Chassidim stand by “ Vayechulu ” when saying Kiddush. What’s really supposed to be done?

Olive Oil for Shabbat Candles - How Serious of a Custom is it?
Rabbi, My wife lights candles every week with the regular white paraffin ones they sell in the store. She lights one for each of us and one for each of the children. I now heard from someone that in order to have children who love the Torah, you must light another two just from olive oil - but this was never our custom. Is it something that we should accept upon ourselves from now on?

Shkiyah and Bein Hashemashot in halacha
Rabbi, I heard from some people that the Mishna Brura was machmir to paskin like shitat HaGr”a to say that the beginning of Shabbat is from the shkiyah , but that in Europe some people still did work after the shkiyah . So is it possible nowadays that someone shouldn’t hold like the Mishna Brura on this? Also, if the Mishna Brura is right and the truth is like the Gr”a, then how’s it possible that some people can still hold like Rabbenu Tam and daven Mincha so late after the shkiyah ?
