Take the cup of wine in the right hand, pass it to the left hand, and lower it onto the palm of the right hand. The cup should be held approximately 9 inches above the table throughout the Kiddush. Those listening to the Kiddush should respond Amen as indicated.

Glance at the Shabbat candles, then say:

Yom Ha-shi-shi.
