A kiddush cup is a special goblet or glass that holds wine or grape juice before a meal on Shabbat and other holidays. Traditionally, the head of the household recites the blessing for Kiddush (sanctification) over the vessel before pouring the wine or grape juice for everyone at the table to drink. Often, families have a special silver kiddush cup that is kept in a place of honor and used solely for this religious rite.
Kiddush is an important ritual for Jews as it is a way to express gratitude to God for the gifts He has bestowed upon us such as the Sabbath and Holidays. It is also an opportunity for us to connect with the Creator as well as reminisce about the miracles He has performed throughout history such as the Exodus from Egypt. It is important that a person says the Kiddush while in full control of their faculties and not after drinking alcohol or smoking as this invalidates the words of the bracha. silver kiddush cup
