Ideally, one should say Kiddush as soon as one gets home from Shul (Shulchan Aruch, O”C 271:1).

If one missed Kiddush on Friday night, it can and should be made up at any point during Shabbat day, which means that one would recite the longer Friday-night version of Kiddush on Shabbat day (Ben Ish Hai, Parashat Bereshit, 19; Hacham Ovadia Yosef, in Halichot Olam).


The Mitzvah of Kiddush is exceptional in that women are obligated even though it is a Mitzvat Aseh She’Hazman Grama, based on a Talmudic derivation that since women are obligated by the prohibitions of Shabbat, they are also obligated in the positive commandments of the day (Berachot 20B).
