The Origin and Observance of Kiddush in Judaism
Kiddush ceremony in Hebrew means “holy” and refers to a ceremony held before a meal during Shabbat and other Jewish holidays. This ceremony, which has been held for thousands of years, indicates a division between regular workday status and a Saturday holiday. The ceremony is held at the beginning and at the end of these days. It includes drinking wine from an ornamental silver cup after the blessing. The wine is then evenly distributed between all participants of the meal in special cups.
