We pass Miriam’s cup round the table and each pour into it some drops of water. Just as each shares in the cup, so, too, the presence of each person adds something unique to this seder.

Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha’olam she’hakol nihiyeh bidvaro.

May the cup of Miriam refresh and inspire us as we embark on our journey through this Haggadah. May we fill it with memories of our past and hopes for our future.

Praised are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the Universe, at whose word all things come into existence. (Drink water)
