The Hebrew word ""Kiddush"" means sanctification. Kiddush cups are used during the Kiddush blessing that is read prior to Shabbat meals and on certain Jewish holidays, as the Torah requires. The person recites the Kiddush after pouring either wine or grape juice into the cup. After the blessing, the reciter drinks from the cup, and then passes it along to others participating, who then partake of the wine or grape juice as well. This process sanctifies the Shabbat or holiday.
