A Kiddush cup is called a “Kos Shel Brochoh”, i.e. a cup with wine that we bless over.
There are many occasions that we bless over wine, not just Kiddush. Although we make Kiddush twice on Shabbat and festival days, morning and evening, we also use a Kiddush cup when Shabbat or festivals end, to make Havdalah and to differentiate between Shabbat and the rest of the week.
Tzedakah. Translated by some as “charity”, by others as “philanthropy” and by others yet as “giving”. The truth, the “Emet” is that “Tzedakah” embodies all of these and more, and Tzedakah boxes, those small plain or ornate boxes kept in homes and places of business, allow us to perform the important mitzvah of Tzedakah at any time and nearly any place, anonymously providing for those in need.
As we all know, Pesach (Passover) is a very special festival, not to mention a very busy time beforehand!
However, the height of Pesach are the Seder nights, and very exciting, especially for kids. We have Four Cups, a Seder plate, interesting stories, an Afikomen, and presents, not to mention a time when families get together, often with interesting guests.
Tzedakah boxes are wonderful gifts for new baby, bar/bat mitzvah, wedding, new home, or just because.
Shavuot is known as the "Festival of Weeks" as we celebrate 7 weeks from Passover, when Moses received the Ten Commandments at Mt.Sinai.
