Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, has handed his daugter, Max, a kiddish cup that had been in the family for about 100 years. He did this on Shabbat (also Sabbath), Jewish day of rest and seventh day of the week.
Zuckerberg said on his Facebook page that the cup belonged to his great grandfather who acquired it after the family immigrated to the US.
“For shabbat tonight, we gave Max a kiddush cup that has been in our family for almost 100 years. Her great-great-grandfather Max got it after our family immigrated here and it has been passed down through our family ever since”
As part of the feast, Zuckerberg displayed the Challah bread, a special Jewish bread, usually braided and typically eaten on ceremonial occasions such as Sabbath and major Jewish holidays (other than Passover).
Ritually-acceptable challah is made of dough from which a small portion has been set aside as an offering.
