The Havdalah Cup


Havdalah, like Kiddush, is recited with a cup. However, unlike Kiddush, there is great latitude in terms of which beverage one may use.

In addition to wine and grape juice, one may use any beverage which is known as an "important" beverage in that region. However, wine is the ideal beverage, or grape juice for those who cannot drink wine.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 296:1-2; Mishneh Berurah 296:8)

Have a great day,
