I am God - and I will take you out from under the burdens...Exodus 6:6.

Prepare to drink the first 3.5 to 4.5 oz cup of sweet red wine (white only if you really have to).

While drinking or eating this evening, liberally leaning to the left is a reminder of royalty from ancient times.

בְּרוּכָה אַתְּ יָהּ אֱלֹהֵינוּ רוּחַ הָעוֹלָם בּוֹרֵאת פְּרִי הַגָפֶן

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה אֲדֹנָי אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, שֶׁהֶחֱיָנוּ וְקִיְּמָנוּ וְהִגִּיעָנוּ לַזְּמָן הַזֶּה

Blessed are you, God, ruler of the universe: who creates the fruit of the vine; who makes the festivals holy; and who gives to us life and sustenance and brings us to this time.
