Description

Kiddush – the consecration of the Sabbath or Holyday over a glass of wine. From what was said in the Torah: “Remember the day of Shabbat, to consecrate it…” our sages taught that it is necessary to mention the sanctity of Shabbat (to make Kiddush) on Shabbat and Holidays. They obliged us to do this at the very beginning over a glass of wine and forbade even to try any kind of food before you make the Kiddush. And although Kiddush can be made not only for wine but also for bread, it is necessary to consecrate Shabbat for wine or pure grape juice initially, except when it is difficult to get the wine or if it is difficult for a person to drink it for any reason. The Holy Communion in Christianity actually originates from the Kiddush since Jesus Christ was doing Kiddush with wine and bread on the Sabbath and Holidays.

This 925-grade sterling silver plated Kiddush cup comes with a saucer and is made of high-quality material, decorated with a view of the old city of Jerusalem and the sacred priestly breastplate “hoshen” worn by the High Priest of the Israelites, according to the Book of Exodus. The twelve stones on the Hoshen, the precious Priestly Breastplate that was worn by the High Priest in Jerusalem Temple stand for the twelve tribes of Israel:

  1. Ruby (Red) stands for the tribe Reuben;
  2. Jade (Green) stands for the tribe Shimon;
  3. Agate (Red, White, and Black Striped) stands for the tribe of Levi;
  4. Carbuncle (Bluish-Green) stands for the tribe of Judah;
  5. Lapis-Lazuli (Blue) stands for the tribe of Issachar;
  6. Quartz Crystal (Clear) stands for the tribe of Zebulun;
  7. Turquoise (Greenish Blue) stands for the tribe of Dan;
  8. Amethyst (Purple) stands for the tribe of Naftali;
  9. Agate (Grey) stands for the tribe of Gad;
  10. Aquamarine (Light Blue) stands for the tribe of Asher;
  11. Onyx (Black) stands for the tribe of Joseph, divided in itself to two tribes of the sons of Joseph: Ephraim and Menashe;
  12. Opal (A Stone Possessing All the Colors) stands for the tribe of Benjamin.
