Why is this night different from all other nights? The Jewish holiday of Passover commemorates the liberation of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery—and comes layered with added meaning this pandemic year. In time for Passover 2021 (which starts on Saturday, March 27, and ends on Sunday, April 4) a number of designers have come up with modern versions of the kiddush cup, the goblet used for the blessing that begins Jewish holiday meals and Shabbat dinners. These special glasses are often passed down for generations. Here are six modern heirlooms.

The Via Maris take is a borosilicate glass chalice with a textured stem and two-toned rim (available in three colorways); $85 each. To see more, go to The Modern Menorah and Other Uncommonly Chic Judaica.
