First cup of wine

Now we say the  Kiddush, the blessing over the wine or grape juice.

The cup of wine reminds us that Passover is a time of joy. The wine also reminds us of the sweetness of freedom.

We raise our cups and say together:

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָּפֶן

Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha'olan borei p'ri hagafen.

Blessed are you Adonai our G-d, Ruler of the Universe, who brings forth fruit of the vine.

Drink the wine or juice.
