Motzi Matzah: Many Hands

Clip Featured in Truah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights's

Hamotzi thanks God for bringing bread from the earth. This bread results from a partnership between God and humanity: God provides the raw materials and people harvest, grind, and bake. So too must we remember that combating human trafficking requires partnerships: among survivors, allies, lawyers, social workers, law enforcement, diplomats, people of faith…the circles of involvement are ever-expanding.

Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha’olam, hamotzi lechem min ha’aretz.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה' אֱלֹֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶך הָעוֹלָם הַמּוֹצִיא לֶחֶם מִן הָאָרֶץ.

Blessed are You ETERNAL our God, Master of time and space, who brings forth bread from the earth.
