Each of these women transgressed the status quo and in doing so played a critical role in our people’s journey towards freedom.

With the second cup of wine we recall our own mothers or the women in our lives who were like mothers to us.

In honor of the second cup:

In what ways did you see your mother deviate from the social expectations of women and in what ways did you see her inhabit them?


בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָּפֶן

Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha-olam, borei p’ree hagafen.

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.

Drink the second glass of wine!
