?מַה נִּשְׁתַּנָּה הַלַּיְלָה הַזֶּה מִכָּל הַלֵּלוֹת
Passover Seder Dinner
ALL:  How can I repay the LORD for all his goodness to me?  I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD.  I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people. (Psalm 116:12-14)
LEADER: Let us fill our cups for the third time this evening. (Lifting the cup) This is the Cup of Redemption, symbolizing the blood of the Passover Lamb. It was the cup "after supper", which Yeshua identified himself -- "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you." (Luke 22:20)
ALL: Ba-rukh A-tah A-do-nai E-lo-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-'o-lam bo-rey pri ha-ga-fen. Blesssed are you, O Lord our God, Ruler of the Universe, who created the fruit of the vine.
(Drink the third cup of wine.)
LEADER: (Lifting the extra cup for Elijah) The theme of this part of the Haggadah before the meal was the redemption of the Israelites from Egypt. In keeping with tradition, we now move to the Messianic redemption. We open the door, indicating our readiness to receive the Prophet Elijah, herald of the Messiah. We must also now open our hearts to the truth.
(Have a child open the door.) (The cup set out only for Elijah, sometimes called "the fifth cup", is not drunk.)
ALL: "See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes." (Malachi 4:5)
LEADER: Elijah was taken up by a great whirlwind in a chariot of fire. We wait for him today to announce the second coming of our Messiah, Son of David.
READER: Before the birth of John the Baptizer, an angel of the Lord said, "And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous--to make ready a people prepared for the Lord." (Luke 1:17)
READER: Later, Yeshua spoke of John, "And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come." (Matthew 11:14)
READER: It was this same John who saw Yeshua and declared, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!" (John 1:29)
LEADER: Let us fill our cups, the Cup of Praise and give thanks to God!
ALL: Ba-rukh A-tah A-do-nai E-lo-he-ynu Me-lekh ha-'o-lam bo-rey pri ha-ga-fen. Blesssed are you, O Lord our God, Ruler of the Universe, who created the fruit of the vine.
(Drink the fourth cup of wine.)
