Slaves eat quickly, stopping neither to wash nor to reflect. Tonight, we are free. We wash and we express our reverence for the blessings that are ours.

The COVID-19 crisis has shown us that washing hands is an act of love for our fellow humans. While traditionally, we would simply pour water over our hands, we know that soap and water or disinfectant is required to destroy dangerous germs and protect each other. So in this time of pandemic we pass a bottle of hand sanitizer, or head to the sink to wash our hands with soap and water!
