Has anyone got any ideas for how to stop stemmed wine glasses falling over all the time at the seder? Something like a car cup holder but for a table – and a pesach table at that!
The only thing I’ve been able to find is called a “yoebi” for some reason and was made for boats. Our seder table can end up a bit like a boat sometimes.
Any suggestions much appreciated. Lets put an end to ruining tablecloths, haggodos, smashing wineglasses…March 12, 2015 1:47 pm at 1:47 pm #1063626☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant

Has anyone else heard an expression stating that a kittel without wine stains on Pesach is like a Yom Kippur machzor without tear stains? Or something of that sort…
If it’s really getting out of hand, gavr6, and the thought of a plastic tablecloth makes you cringe, then just take DY’s advice.December 5, 2017 11:41 pm at 11:41 pm #1420728
Mighty mug has a plastic stemmed wine glass with a suction gripper on the base… but that won’t work if you have a tablecloth… and that would mean that you’d have to buy a set of these wine glasses that are approx $18 eachDecember 5, 2017 11:51 pm at 11:51 pm #1420727
Omgosh the yoebi is such a cool invention!
And you’re right… why should spilling wine glasses be a regular part of having a sedar meal (or Shabbos, or any meal with stemmed wine glasses).
Even a dinner of just adults sometimes results in tipped over glasses… hmm.December 5, 2017 11:51 pm at 11:51 pm #1420737

Isn’t the point of a stemmed wine glass to prevent the wine from being warmed by your body heat when you hold the glass? But if the wine bottle is at room temperature, rather than on ice, the stem serves no purpose.December 6, 2017 12:46 am at 12:46 am #1420751
Yes, but are we talking about room temperature wine?
And room temperature wine can still be heated by our hands…
Plus the stemware adds space on the table, since you can slip the base under your plate (so it takes up less table real estate).December 6, 2017 10:31 am at 10:31 am #1420982iacisrmmaParticipant
I didn’t realize this thread was a “bump” from two years ago but….

We don’t use wine glasses with stems at the seder but use them on a regular basis on shabbosim and don’t have any issue with them tipping over. Why do you have an issue with them at the seder?December 6, 2017 12:19 pm at 12:19 pm #1421119
Sorry iacisrmma for not dating it… I promised that I’d continue doing that… is there a way to halachically and morally end the contract with you please?
I know that you already told me the pronunciation of your username —thank you for that(!)
Do I have your permission to complete the contract retroactively last Kol Nidre? I thought about it then, but didn’t know the protocol.. maybe this is a Ask Your OR shaila?
Thank you iacisrmma, in advance, for your consideration.December 6, 2017 12:29 pm at 12:29 pm #1421170iacisrmmaParticipant
LB: I started to answer and was wondering why are we talking about the seder when it wasn’t even chanukah so I looked at the OP and realized it was “bumped”. That being said, we do not have an “official” contract so if you make a mistake “no harm, no foul”.December 6, 2017 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #1421557
Thank you iacisrmma 🙂December 6, 2017 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #1421573golferParticipant
Thank you, iacisrmma.
Appreciate, even if it’s a bit late.
