In Jewish practice, it is customary to perform a ritual washing of one’s hands before
consuming a meal that includes bread or matzah. We wash away the dirt of prejudices
and negative stereotypes of "other people" which cause so much hurt and pain in
After we wash our hands, we recite the blessing:
בָּ רוּךְ אַתָּה יי אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר קִדְשָׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתָיו וְצִוָּנוּ עַל נְטִילַת יָדַיִם
Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech ha’Olam asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav
v’tzivanu al n’tilat yadayim.
Blessed are you, Sovereign of the Universe, who has sanctified us with your
commandments and commanded us to wash our hands.
