Kaddish Cup

The Kaddish cup, in Judaism, is used to drink wine or juice on special occasions.  This one, decorated and carved in the 1800s, has been passed down in our family since then. My great great aunt escaped Russia during an uprising in the 1880s, where the Jews were blamed for various things, such as assassinations. Jews were executed if caught. She miraculously escaped and passed down this cup. Our family immigrated to America, where we have celebrated our traditions. We use this cup on the Sabbath to celebrate in our family today.  

Place(s): Russia
Year: 1880
