The silver kiddush cup is a beautiful way to enhance your Sabbath and holiday table. This set consists of one sterling silver classically-designed Kiddush cup and plate that are a luxurious and timeless addition to any Jewish home. It’s also the perfect gift for a wedding, anniversary or any special occasion.
The Kiddush cup is used to sanctify the Sabbath, holidays, births, and other special occasions through wine ceremonies. The word kiddush literally means sanctification, and the cup is used to make a blessing over wine or grape juice before a meal.
There are many different types of Kiddush cups, ranging from gold and silver to pewter and fine china. Most are engraved with designs like stars of David, lions, vines, flowers, and other symbols which represent the Jewish people throughout history. They can be plain or ornately decorated, depending on the occasion. Some are engraved with family names, words of blessing to God, and other details that are meaningful to the Jewish people.
A Kiddush cup should always be wiped clean after use with a cloth. It should not be washed with soap or sprayed with cleaner because this can damage the silver and degrade the 14-karat gold plating on the inside of the cup which preserves the taste and quality of the wine. It should never be placed in a dishwasher because it can cause scratches on the surface of the cup and may even break the glass. The Kiddush cup should also be kept away from anything acidic, such as fruit or coffee, because this can taint the taste of the wine. silver kiddush cup
