Our Seder is almost over. We lift our cups for the last time.

With this fourth cup of wine we remember the fourth promise to the Jewish people: “And I will take you to be my people.” We learn that God loves us.

I will take you to me as a people, and I will be for you God, that you will know that I, the Eternal, am your God, who brought you out from under the burden of the Egyptians. This is the promise of covenant.

As God has kept this promise for five thousand years, so may we keep our commitments to others, building connections of justice and integrity, seeking to make this world a better place.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָּפֶן

Barukh ata Adonai, Eloheinu Melekh HaOlam, Borei P’re Hagafen.

Blessed are You, Eternal our God, Sovereign of Existence, who creates the fruit of the vine.

All drink the fourth cup while reclining
