A kiddush cup is the vessel used to hold kosher wine before or during a Shabbat meal. Traditionally, a kiddush cup is made of silver and decorated with beautiful ornaments, such as fruits or grapes to symbolize the wine. Often a person’s name or a biblical passage is written on the cup. Many people like to pass down a traditional kiddush cup from generation to generation as a family heirloom. A kiddush cup is also a lovely gift for a Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah.
Today, the most common kiddush cups are made of sterling silver. This metal is known to be purer and more durable than other materials such as copper, ceramics, or glass. Silver also has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, which make it ideal for use as a kiddush cup. Silver kiddush cups can last a lifetime when properly cared for, and they are an excellent choice for a Bar Mitzvah or bat mitzvah gift.
The Jewish Wine Cups collection includes a number of options, from an unadorned beaker style cup to cups with the words “Borei Pri Hagafen,” (blessed are you Lord our God King of the universe who creates the fruit of the vine) cut out and featured around the top edge of the cup. The collection also includes a stunning modern metallic color that will add a beautiful touch to any home décor.
For a more elegant option, the collection includes a Kiddush fountain set that features a bowl on top that distributes wine through small taps into individual beaker-style cups standing beneath on a circular tray. The set comes in a choice of colors and will be the perfect addition to any table setting. kiddush cup
