The kiddush cup (kiddush goblet, kiddush beaker) is a goblet used for drinking wine in Jewish
religious ceremonies on special occasions such as wedding or in the benediction before the evening meal
preceding each Sabbath or a holy festival. Ordinarily there is no special form for these cups and any type
of wine cup may be used.
A kiddush cup or wine goblet is used on Sabbath. On Friday evening it is filled with
wine, often from Israel, at the beginning of the Shabbat meal. The word 'kiddush' actually refers to the
blessing which is recited over the wine before the meal begins. After Kiddush has been made, everyone
present shares the wine. The goblet may be used again at the Havdallah ceremony at the end of the Sabbath.
