For thousands of years, Jewish families have celebrated Shabbat and other holidays with a special ritual involving wine. After the Kiddush prayer and blessing is recited, each person at the table receives a small sip of wine from an ornamental silver goblet. Whether you’re looking for an exquisite Kiddush cup or a stylish Kiddush fountain, Zion Judaica is your source for fine utensils that make the ceremony memorable.
The ritual of the Kiddush cup is an important part of Jewish life, and many families have a set of silver Kiddush cups passed down through generations or purchased as wedding gifts. But sometimes, it’s nice to add a bit of fun and excitement to the celebration by using a fountain to pour the wine into smaller cups.
A wine fountain combines an ancient Jewish ideal with modernity. Designed for a flawless pour from a large Kiddush cup down expertly-designed channels into eight awaiting smaller wine cups, it’s the perfect way to elevate your dinner party and bring a touch of elegance to your Jewish home.
The inventor of the kiddush cup fountain, Jizchak Bier, has said that his work is not only a beautiful design but also a symbol of rebirth. At a time when there were almost no Jewish silversmiths left alive after the Holocaust, it was a way for him to fill a gap in the community and rekindle interest in Jewish tradition. This elegant, gilded fountain is an excellent addition to any Jewish home, and makes a stunning gift for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah or other special occasion.
