All: Fill gla sses with wine or grape juice (don't drink yet!)

Reader 1:

Over the course of the Seder we drink 4 cups of wine (or grape juice). This is traditionally done to commemorate the four promises Yahuah 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…”.

Reader 2:

It may have been this first 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.)

Host:

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

All:

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

Host:

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

All:

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.

All:

Drink the first glass of wine or grape juice!
