Pour the first gla ss of wine or grape juice (don't drink yet!)

Over the course of the Seder we drink 4 cups of wine. This is traditionally done to commemorate the four promises G-d made to the people of Israel in Exodus 6:7-6; 1. “I will take you out…” 2. “I will save you…” 3. “I will redeem you…” 4. “I will take you as a nation…”.

It is the third cup of which it is recorded that our Messiah Yehoshua “took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

“For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.” (Luke 22:17–18.)

We begin with the first cup, the Cup of Sanctification, representing God's promise to take the Israelites out of Eygpt.

Baruch atah Adonai, Elohenu Melech haolam, borei p'ri hagafen.

Blessed are You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.

Baruch atah, Adonai Eloheinu, Melech haolam, shehecheyanu v’kiy’manu v’higianu laz’man hazeh.

Blessed are You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, for giving us life, for sustaining us, and for enabling us to reach this season.

Drink the first glass of wine or grape juice!
