A kiddush fountain is a beautiful addition to any Shabbat or holiday table and makes the ritual of saying the Kiddush blessing over wine (or grape juice) much more exciting for kids as well as adults. It is also a convenient way to fill several glasses of wine at the same time. The wine fountain is a beautiful piece of Judaica that will be enjoyed by everyone at the table for years to come.
The large cup used to say the Kiddush blessing sits in a holder above the small cups that are arranged around it. The wine is poured through a series of narrow canals in the fountain base and into each of the small cups in turn, making for an objectively fun experience that will delight all of your guests and make your table the talk of the town. The set is also a gorgeous silver heirloom that can be passed down through generations.
Can any cup be a Kiddush Cup?
It is a traditional practice to use a special Kiddush cup, but there is no requirement that the actual blessing be said in a certain type of glass. Traditionally, Jewish families would buy ornate silver Kiddush cups that they would use every Shabbat and during the holidays. These became treasured heirlooms for the family, and often were a source of pride and nostalgia.
However, nowadays it is more common to use non-alcoholic grape juice for the Kiddush, which is completely acceptable and even encouraged in most Jewish communities. This is especially true if you live in an area where excellent Israeli wines are produced and regularly win international acclaim. kiddush fountain
