As our Seder draws near an end, we take up our wine cups one last time. With this fourth cup of wine, we remember G-d's fourth promise, "I will take you to be my people." We give thanks for the experience of celebrating Passover with our family and friends, for the traditions that help inform our daily lives and guide our actions and aspirations. We remember once again, that not everyone in our world is yet free and we are reminded of our responsibility to be G-d's partners in bringing freedom to those who are enslaved, peace to those at war, and food to those who are hungry. This is our purpose as Jews. May we live to fulfill it.

Let us raise our glasses and say together:

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

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

Blessed art thou, Lord our G-d, King of Universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.
