Kiddush (Aramaic for “Holy” and literally translated as “sanctification”) is either (a) blessing recited over a cup of wine expressing the sanctity of the Sabbath or of a festival; or (b) refreshments served in the synagogue after the recital of Kiddush.
In this case, the former definition is intended.
The kiddush consists of three parts:
Three verses from Genesis that recount how G‑d rested on the seventh day and sanctified it.
The blessing for wine
A blessing thanking G-d for giving us the Shabbat
