There is an extra cup of wine on the table.  This is the Cup of Elijah.  There is a story that Elijah, a great teacher who lived many years ago, visits every Seder to wish everyone a year of peace and freedom.  We open the door and invite Elijah to come in.  Watch his cup to see if any of the wine disappears. 

There is another cup on the table, this one filled with water.  This Is dedicated to Miriam.  We fill Miriam's cup in hope that all women may continue to draw from the stregth and wisdom of our hertage.

Let us sing a song welcoming Elijah
