Shabbat-Paris Olympia Leonard Cohen Tour-Photos by "JC" and "SE"

I don't recall seeing the beautiful silver Kiddush Cup before in the tour Shabbat Shalom photographs. Perhaps it is new or my memory of the last tour photos is rusty. But its appearance in tonight's "Arrangement by LC" adds an air of completeness to the Shabbat table setting so beautifully captured with the "Photo by: JC"
Shabbat enters with words of wonder poured upon rich wine, to fulfill the verse, “Remember the Sabbath day to sanctify it.”

We call it kiddush, a ritual of words and drink, a magical bridge from the harried weekday to the day of rest...The kiddush serves as the kickoff for the evening and daytime Shabbat meals.
 The  kiddush consists of three parts: 1) Three verses from Genesis that recount how G‑d rested on the seventh day and sanctified it. 2) The blessing for wine. 3) A blessing thanking G‑d for giving us the Shabbat. All in attendance answer “Amen” at the conclusion of the blessings.
Then everyone else gathered around the table has a sip of wine from the Kiddush cup

And another Shabbat Shalom greeting from a FRIEND in Paris for the Leonard Cohen concerts.

Shabbat Shalom...took this one on way home
