Urchatz - Washing Away What We Carry

Using the small bowl and the cup provided we pour fresh water over our hands.. washing them

In washing our hands, we symbolically cleanse ourselves of the year that was and prepare for the year to come. Let us now think of one part of last year we would like to leave behind, and one hope for the year to come. Let us also take a moment to think about the brave individuals who stand and fight those in power.
