The Fourth Cup: Women in Every Generation

We drink this fourth cup of wine to honor our grandmothers and mothers, daughters and granddaughters, who have been a cornerstone of creating our Jewish homes and have made a commitment to perpetuating our Jewish heritage, traditions, and values and building on them and from them.

May we all have the courage to emulate their deeds and draw strength from their vision and commitment to the Jewish people.



If not for the courage of these women, the Jewish people would not have survived.

Baruch Atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha’olam borei p’ri hagafen.

You are Blessed, O God, Spirit of the World, who creates the fruit of the vine.

From the 1994 Columbus Ohio First Women’s Seder. Used with permission.
