I'd like to preface this by saying that I have a lot of respect for the Jewish people and if this is at all insulting I certainly don't intend it and you all should please find in your hearts to forgive me.
Must have been a year ago, I attended a Jewish Passover Seder. I found it very interesting. There were four ceremonial wine blessings and everyone drank four cups of wine. (The kids had grape juice.) There was sweet bubbly white, there was Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah. One guy drank port.
Mealtime was over and the singing began. They explained the first songs were Psalms. But after the fourth cup of wine I think it finally got to them and they started singing silly songs.
So I'd like to ask about one of those songs. They told me the name was "Ah, Dear Me" or something like that, I don't remember exactly, but I think most of the song was in Hebrew.
However, the refrain of the song, it was repeated many times throughout the song, was: "Cabernet! Cabernet!"
2 times, just like that. After every stanza.
I understand a drinking song about wine. But why sing about Cabernet? Does it hold more religious significance than the other wines? Or did they sing about all the wines, maybe that was the only one I understood. Maybe if someone explains the whole song it will make more sense.
Oh, and I don't know what the following means but it's on the bottom of every question so I'm putting it here too:
