Miriam, sister of Moses, plays an important role in the Exodus story. It is said that a well followed the Jews as they wandered through the desert until the time of Miriam's death, a gift from God for her optimism. We fill Miriam's Cup with water to honour the contributions of women in the Exodus story, and throughout the Torah. For our tradition says: "If it weren't for the righteousness of women of that generation we would not have been redeemed from Egypt."
