The Decorative Filigree & Grapes Goblet Kiddush Cup with Blessing over Wine is a gorgeous Judaica set that ensures a reverent and beautiful appearance any time the Kiddush is required to be read. Both the cup and matching saucer both feature intricate and detailed engravings with Hebrew text and grapes prominently displayed. This cup set is the perfect addition to your Kiddush Cup collection, and makes a great gift as well. "Kiddush," the Hebrew word for sanctification, is a blessing that is read over the wine or grape juice that is placed inside the cup before the Friday evening meal before Shabbat begins. Once the Kiddush is recited, the person reading the blessing drinks from the cup, and then passes it on to others participating for them to drink from as well. Kiddush can also occur the following morning and afternoon of Shabbat, and also the evening before and morning of certain holidays.
