First Cup: SANCTIFICATION, or Set Apart

All “ I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.”

  Exodus 6:6

Host: We do not sanctify the cup or the wine, rather we ask Adonai to set apart this time to honor Him. Please remember we are to completely consume each cup. As such, please do not take too much wine. We do not want to encourage drunkenness. Let us fill our cups and bless the Lord:

All: Baruch Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech ha’olam

Bo-ray po-ree ha-ga-fen

“Blessed are You, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, Creator of the fruit of the vine.

(Drink first cup).
