What Is A Kiddush Cup?

May 31, 2008
The Jewish practice of honoring the mitzvahs is done by the reciting of the Kiddush. The Kiddush recitation is the words of honoring before every Shabbat and holiday meal. This honoring is a Jewish law from the Torah, and these required words before specific meals, long ago came to include the Kiddush cups. The Kiddush Cup is a necessity in every Jewish Synagogue and every practicing Jewish home too! For example, there is the usage of the Kiddush Cup during the Friday night Kiddush honoring, before the even meal. The honoring versions are slightly different, and also shorter, with only the wine honoring without the bread honoring before hand.

The Jewish practice of honoring the mitzvahs is done by the reciting of the Kiddush. The Kiddush recitation is the words of honoring before every Shabbat and holiday meal. This honoring is a Jewish law from the Torah, and these required words before specific meals, long ago came to include the Kiddush cups. The rule of thumb is to use goblet made of silver for the recitation, and this cup is to be full of revi'it or wine. This Kiddush cup is to be first sipped from by the individual that has recited the words of honor, and then it is to be passed around the table for each person to pore a small amount of wine into their smaller cups.

The Kiddush Cup is a necessity in every Jewish Synagogue and every practicing Jewish home too! Many of the beautiful and elegant Silver Sterling Cups will have very detailed carvings within the silver, which are more often than not, the places and events of the Jewish history. It is a required staple to the Shabbat and of any other Jewish holiday honoring. Although the part of the honoring is more important than the makings of the cup its self, the honoring this cup must be large enough, and considered special in some form or manner, even if only symbolically.

There are different meals of Kiddush honoring, just as there are different holidays. For example, there is the usage of the Kiddush Cup during the Friday night Kiddush honoring, before the even meal. After the thankfulness of the breaking of the bread, come the honoring words for the wine with this cup. The Saturday morning Shabbat may also be the next usage of the sacred cup, but this is a Jewish honoring demanded by the Rabi laws, not the laws of Torah. Although, originally this may have been considered a lower status of an honoring, there was eventually elevation due to being what is called "The Great Kiddush". The honoring versions are slightly different, and also shorter, with only the wine honoring without the bread honoring before hand.

This sacred cup is such an important part of so many Jewish holidays and events, there must be quality within the cup that you finally decide on, especially if looking to make a real staple investment. This is a necessity for many special events throughout the year, like the birth of family additions, weddings, birthdays and many other very happy occasions. With so many blessings, it is best to only purchase a Kiddush Cup that will be a part of your family's Jewish practicing heritage for generations to come.
