A kiddush fountain is a wonderful way to add color and elegance to your Shabbat table. It can also be a great gift for someone special.
This nickel fountain set includes a large Kiddush cup that can simultaneously pour wine into eight smaller cups. It is adorned with Stars of David, floral motifs and the Hebrew names of the four rivers that flowed into Eden.
Jewish ritual objects carry significant symbolic meaning. They represent a link to the past and a connection to the future. They are also a way to pass on important values and beliefs. This is true of the kiddush cups that are used in Jewish ceremonies and family gatherings.
Typically, a kiddush cup holds a revi’it of wine, a Talmudic measurement that is slightly more than three liquid ounces. This amount is symbolic of the fullness of life.
On Friday night before the Shabbat meal, two kiddush blessings are recited over wine or grape juice. Then, the person who recites the prayer pours the drink into small cups for each member of the family. Some families pour the drink into individual cups while others use a kiddush fountain that doles out the wine evenly to each cup.
Kiddush cups are not only a beautiful way to dress up your table but also provide an easy, convenient and hygienic solution for serving wine or grape juice to guests during Shabbat or Jewish holidays. A Kiddush fountain rests a large cup of wine on top and the liquid is poured into smaller liquor cups which are assembled around the base.
The resulting spectacle is sure to delight family members and guests at your next Shabbat dinner or holiday feast! This stunning nickel fountain set features an elegant central pouring station and 8 matching Kiddush cups. A unique blend of modernity and tradition, this piece is perfect for any Jewish home or to give as a thoughtful gift. A classic piece of Judaica that will be treasured for generations to come.
The function of a kiddush fountain is to make it easier for hosts to serve wine to family and guests during Shabbat meals. It combines an elegant central stand for the glasses with a set of cunningly hidden pipes that automatically fill the cups when you pour wine into the top.
The traditional practice is for the head of the household to pour wine into little matching cups to pass around during the meal. However, this can be uncomfortable for guests and often leads to spills on the nice Shabbat tablecloths.
Kiddush fountains are a hygienic and convenient solution to this problem. They are easy to use and a beautiful centerpiece for your Sabbath and Holiday table. They also make a great gift for any occasion, including weddings and housewarming gifts.
A wine fountain is a beautiful way to add luxury and a touch of majesty to your Shabbat and Jewish holiday tables. Rather than having to pass around one large goblet for all to drink from, the wine is poured into the central fountain, and then evenly distributed into the smaller cups, making it much easier and more fun.
The fountain also helps to maintain a high level of hygiene, which is particularly important for those who host many guests or family members. With designs ranging from elegant silver to cheerful anodized aluminum, there is a kiddush fountain to suit every taste and budget at aJudaica. Whether it’s a gift for yourself or someone else, it will be cherished for generations to come. Objects like this are the legacy of the past and the future of Jewish life.
