Kiddush Cup

Kiddush Cup

The Kiddush cup is the cup from which we drink Kiddush wine. “Kiddush” literally means “sanctification” – setting apart or making holy. Shabbat is set apart from the rest of the week as a special, holy day to rest. We say a short prayer before drinking the wine, to give thanks for the wine itself, and for Shabbat.
