Miriam's Cup is a new ritual for the Passover seder. Its purpose is to honor the role of Miriam the Prophetess in the Exodus and to highlight the contributions of women to Jewish culture, past and present. "Miriam's cup" is filled with water to symbolize Miriam's miraculous well. The well was given by G-d in honor of Miriam, the prophetess, and followed and nurtured the Israelites throughout their journey in the desert.
