Legend tells us that on Pesach Elijah appears at every Seder and sips a little wine from "his" cup. But before we welcome Elijah into our home, we must fill his cup with wine so he will have something to sip.

Let's each pour a little wine from our own glass into Elijah's cup until it is filled. This helps us remember that we must all contribute our best talents and energies to help fulfill Elijah's promise of a peaceful world. Elijah dedicated himself to defending God against non-believers, and as a reward for his devotion and hard work, he was whisked away to heaven at the end of his life, but before he actually died. Tradition says that Elijah will return to earth one day to signal the arrival of the Messiah, and the end of hatred, intolerance, and war.
