Miriam’s cup

Miriam’s cup is filled from the same jar of water used to wash the hands, and placed on the table.

Miriam’s Cup rests on the table, welcoming Miriam the prophet, sister of Moses and Aaron. It is a symbol of the well of water that followed the people Israel through the wilderness. The well provided physical nourishment through water, but also
spiritual nourishment, as a constant reminder of the Divine presence within the community. It remains on our table throughout our seder, guiding us in our journey as we reenact the exodus from slavery to freedom tonight.  (From Haggadah Shir Geulah, 2015)
