Passover Seder Kiddush Cup
The Seder begins with the kiddush ritual, a sanctification over wine that is done on certain Jewish holidays and on shabbat. Kiddush consists of a special prayer and it’s what signifies the ritual meal we are about to embark on as special and holy.
Since the kiddush prayer is done over wine, a kiddush cup for the wine itself is needed!
Unlike other holidays and shabbat, however, on Passover everyone at the table is commanded to drink their own cup of wine, and not just once after the kiddush prayer but a total of four times during the Seder. So, every Passover Seder guest should have their own kiddush cup.
Others may prefer to have different, individually beautiful kiddush cups for each person at the table, or a distinct cup for the leader of the Seder and more plain, matching ones for everyone else.
Whatever your family’s style, you’ll find a number of kiddush cup options on our site!
