Passover Goblets

A very important and traditional part of the seder is to drink four cups of red wine or juice to celebrate a variety of blessings during the seder. These elegant glasses were designed to celebrate some of these blessings and also help your children become involved in preparing for the seder. We used a copper paint pen and simple design to match our table setting, but encourage your children to use other colors, faux gems, pearls, or other items that match your décor when decorating the glasses. The glasses should be hand washed carefully and all of the decorations should be limited to the outside of the glasses. There are a wide variety of explanations as to why we drink four glasses of wine at the seder. We have chosen one of the most common and meaningful reasons for our glasses, but you can choose any sayings or blessings that are meaningful to your family.

Wash and dry the glasses well. Decide what you want to write on the glasses and practice writing each word and saying on paper once or twice. We used the four different terms of deliverance cited in the book of Shemot (Exodus) (6:6-7):

Passover Goblet Detail"and I will bring you out (Vehotzeti) from under the burden of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you (Vehitzalti) from your bondage, and I will redeem you (Vega'alti) with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments. And I will take you (Velakachti) to me for a people…"

On the side of the each glass write one of the words (Vehotzeti, Vehitzalti, Vega'alti, and Velakachti) in your neatest script using the paint pen. If you make a mistake, wipe it off very quickly with a tissue. The letters can also be stenciled on if desired. Around the base of the glass, write the corresponding words from the book of Shemot in your neatest printing. Let the glasses dry thoroughly and cure if necessary as directed by the glass paint manufacturer.
