Four Cups of Wine and a Fifth One!
Every year, on Pesach, Jews throughout the world celebrate the exodus of Egypt. Families gather together and conduct a Seder, with plenty of wine and Matzos.
Since HaShem used four expressions of redemption, we drink four cups of wine.
But there is a fifth cup that we don’t drink from. It’s placed in the center of the table. This special cup is called “The Cup of Eliyahu,” since he is the one to announce our ultimate redemption of Moshiach and bring us to Eretz Yisrael – just like HaShem promised “ViHaivaisy” – “I will bring you to the land”.
Here’s an amazing fact – you may need your calculator:
Add the Hebrew word, ViHaivaisy – והבאתי and it equals 424, the exact same amount as Moshiach ben David – משיח בן דוד!
