Every Friday night, we begin the Shabbos meal with sanctifying the Shabbos over a cup of wine (making Kiddush). It seems like such a simple action, but the Talmud teaches that through saying this Kiddush, we are actually becoming partners with God in the creation of the world!
What does that mean? How does saying a few verses and blessings turn us into God’s partners?
Join me as we begin with the source of Kiddush in the Torah, then understand the basic text and finally uncover the deeper meaning and power of the Friday night Kiddush!
