June 9, 2006, Newsletter Issue #10: 4 Cups of Wine

Tip of the Week

Throughout the Passover Seder, there are four cups of wine poured.

An individual is not suppose to pour their own wine as Passover is a celebration of freedom from slavery.

Anytime the wine is drank, it should be drank in a reclining position. Again, this is to symbolize and celebrate the freedom of not being slaves of Pharaoh.

The promises G-d made to the Jewish people:

1) I will deliver you out of Egypt

2) I will take you out of slavery

3) I will show you my powers

4)I will make you a great nation

These are times throughout the Seder the wine is drank.

A fifth cup of wine is poured and left on the Seder table. This is for the prophet Elijah who comes and visits each Passover Seder and shares in the celebration.
