Urchatz | וּרְחַץ

LEADER: The second ceremony of the seder is known as Urchatz, "Washing of the Hands." If there's one thing we've learned from the  pandemic, it's how to wash our hands.

PARTICIPANT:  We wash our hands two times during the seder: now, with no blessing, so we can get ready for the rituals; and then again later, we’ll wash with a blessing preparing for the meal.

LEADER:  Now we will all take the time to go to the sink and wash our hands. 


Reflect: What shmutz (Yiddish for dirt) in your life would you like to be rid of?
