The Cup of Blessing (The Berakah Cup)

The Cup of Blessing (The Berakah Cup)

The third cup would be mixed and this is where the supper officially began. The family would finally eat the lamb and the unleavened bread. Because customs change over time, it’s hard to figure how this actually was staged, but it seems that there was a blessing over the bread, there was a serving of a hors d’oeuvre, which consisted of a small morsel of bread, and at the end, the main course was eaten. Once the meal was completed, the father recited another blessing over the third cup and it was consumed. The drinking of the third cup of wine was known as the “cup of blessing.”
