Did you know that at some seder tables a second cup, known as Miriam’s Cup, is also set out?

Miriam’s Cup, in honor of Moses’ sister, is filled with water and symbolizes the miracle of Miriam’s well, which sustained the Israelites during their long journey in the desert. It is also used to highlight the contributions of women to Jewish culture, both past and present.

Spring has arrived and with it comes the eight-day Jewish holiday of freedom. It’s time to clean out your chametz, open up a box of matzah and set up for your seder. So join our Passover festivities to learn all about this pinnacle holiday in the Jewish calendar.

We’ll be presenting a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to the first night of Passover on April 08th (begins at sundown)! So stop by again tomorrow.
