The door is opened for Elijah.


May Adonai, blessed is He, send us abundant blessing to this house and upon this table at which we have eaten.  May He send us Elijah, the Prophet – may he be remembered for good – to proclaim to us good tidings, salvation, and consolations!

Together we take the cup of wine, now recalling the third divine promise:


As it is written: “I will redeem you with an outstretched arm”

ברוך אתה, יי, אלהינו, מלח העולם, בורא פרי הגפן

Baruch atah, Adonai, Eloheinu, Melech haolam, borei p’ri hagafen.

Blessed are You, Adonai, Sovereign of the universe, creator  of the fruit of the vine.

The door is closed.  The fourth cup of wine is poured.
