A Time of Remembering

The most beloved Jewish prophet of all, who’s tales frequently comes down to earth to help Jews in distress, is the prophet Elijah. Tonight we pour our second glass of wine, as a tribute to the Elijah.

We also fill a glass for Elijah, with the hopes that he will join our Seder. While we do that, we ask a child at the table to open a door or window, as a way to invite Elijah in.

Together, we bless our second cup of the Seder.

{{We raise our cups and recite}}   

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָּפֶן
Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha-olam, borei p’ree hagafen

We give thanks for the creation of the fruit of the vine.

{{Drink the second cup of wine!}}
