The Four Cups at the Seder


For the four cups of wine [or grape juice, for those who cannot handle wine] at the Seder, one is supposed to drink the whole cup, or at least the majority of the cup, each time - this type of complete consumption demonstrates a sense that we are royalty at the Seder.

If finishing the cup is a problem due to the size of the cup, there is a simple solution - use a smaller cup. The minimum size cup is about 3.7 ounces, according to standard estimates.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 472:9)

Have a great day,
