I read that a reviit (the minimal size for a cup used for kiddush, havdala etc) is 86.4 mL according to the generally accepted view (see here for options). Does anyone know where I can get a cup that is exactly that size or as close to it as possible? I don't need to be using extra wine when I make kiddush every week.

This cup is 3 oz which is 88.7 ml and is actually a kiddush cup :)

    To be clear, your cup is 3 ounces. I don't know enough laws about advertising but I bet they can be slightly off and still label it that way. My answer above is a European manufacturer who labeled it as 94 mL. But, yes, yours is an actual kiddush cup!

    Compare with this cup: amazon.com/Woodbury-Pewter-Communion-Cup-oz/dp/B001A6LR82/… They are clearly the same cup but one is $10 cheaper! I wonder if it counts as AZ..

    I guess the Jewish star makes demand lower so they have to charge more :)

    avi, that's the opposite of how supply and demand are supposed to work. More likely, it's for the extra work and additional supply chain steps required to put the star on.

  • @IsaacMoses That is actually how supply and demand work in Judaica, however.

Try this one. It's 94 mL which is as close as I'd feel comfortable with. The manufacturer's website is here, but the first link has free shipping in the USA.

Lechayim!

    Answering your own question is different from talking to yourself :) "try this one." is something you say to other people :)P

  • Hhmm. Are you sure that's an accurate size? I've encountered many of these types of cups that are larger than they advertise. Also, I wonder if Ramma would call it a gluk glass being that the mouth is small.

  • @user6591 I have measured it with a TD volumetric pipette. It may even be a bit bigger than advertised. As for narrow, it's transparent so you can still see the wine, so that shouldn't be a problem. Plus narrow allows for less volume loss at the top, if you're ensuring you don't spill.
