Cup #2: The Cup of Deliverance

Each Passover, everyone seated at the Seder table is asked to see themselves as though they personally left Egypt.

The Seder reminds us that it was not only our ancestors who were saved from slavery -- we were saved along with them.

Group says: We are grateful for the rescue of our ancestors from Egypt, enabling us to reach this night and eat matzoh and bitter herbs. May we continue to reach future holidays in peace and happiness.

Leader: בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָּפֶן

Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha-olam, borei p’ree hagafen.

Group: We thank the force that creates the fruit of the vine.

[Everyone: Drink the second glass of wine.]
