Miriam’s Cup

image description

Miriam was the sister of Moses. We first saw her in the Torah when she placed Moses into the waters of the Nile and hid in the reeds to make sure that he was taken by someone who would take care of him. Later, Miriam is associated with the well that followed B’nei Yisrael (the Children of Israel) as they traveled through the desert. Miriam’s association with water has led to an innovation on the Seder table, Miriam’s Cup. This cup, filled with water, is meant to remind Seder participants of the important role that women played in the Exodus from Egypt and in B’nei Yisrael’s travels through the desert.
