I want to thank you and your staff for all you did to help us select and receive the beautiful miniature kiddush cups. We purchased these for our seniors who are residents of the Kobernick-Anchin campus here in Sarasota, Florida who previously had been using plastic cups! We dedicated the new kiddush cups at our Kabbalat Shabbat service - residents held the cups with such joy, they loved the Jerusalem design which reminded them of long-ago visits to Israel. Several residents with Alzheimer's spoke up, some for the first time in months. Thank you so much. Rabbi Barbara Aiello, resident rabbi, Kobernick Campus, Sarasota, FL
Decorative Blessing Over Wine Goblet Kiddush Cup Wavy Stem
Decorative, unique Silver plated Judaica goblet for Kiddush, made of nickel with leaves of diamond crosshatch designs resembling flower petals and a wavy, patterned stem. Goblet is engraved with words from the Hebrew blessing over grapes, “Borei pri hagafen.” Also included are a matching saucer and protective cup liner.
This unique, artistic Kiddush cup is simply matchless. Its surface is engraved with several intricate designs. Most prominent is the ring of crosshatched “petals,” making this judaica goblet resemble a blossoming flower. The Kiddush cup is also embossed with the Hebrew phrase “boray p’ri hagafen,” which originates from the blessing over wine that is part of the Kiddush prayer.
On Shabbat and Yom Tov, prior to beginning the festive meals, Jewish families observe the ritual of Kiddush. Kiddush is a series of short blessings made over a glass of wine. The phrase on these goblets, “boray p’ri hagafen,” comes from the final blessing of Kiddush, and where G-d is thanked for providing us with the wine. Although wine is the traditional beverage for this blessing, kosher grape juice is a common, accepted non-alcoholic alternative, especially when children are participating in the Shabbat festivities.
