A Flawed Cup


For the Havdalah cup (as well as for any other cup used with a mitzvah, such as at kiddush or at a wedding), one may not use a cup if someone else already drank therefrom. Such a cup is said to be pagum, flawed.

One may re-complete a flawed cup by adding beverage to it, and then it may be used.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 182, 271:10-11, 296:1)

Have a great day,
