As our Seder draws to an end, we once again take up our cups of wine. The Redemption is not yet complete. The fourth cup recalls us to our covenant with the Eternal One, to the tasks that still await us as a people called to holy service, to a great purpose for which the people of Israel live: the preservation and affirmation of hope.

And I will take you to be my people, and I will be your God.

Barach Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech ha-olam, borei pre ha-gafen.

[All drink the fourth cup of wine.]
