We'll wash our hands twice tonight. Now, with no blessing, to get us ready for the rituals to come. Later, with a blessing, to prepare us for the meal.

Often, our rituals are holy, and we observe them with blessings and thanks. But right now, this hand washing is a quiet moment. No blessing. No prayer. No conversation with God. This hand washing is personal. Just for ourselves. 

Those who wish to observe the traditional hand washing, please feel free to make your way to the sinks ( point out sinks ). All others, please take a moment of quiet to yourself. Have a conversation with yourself. Why are you here tonight? What do you want to get out of this evening?
