Slaves eat quickly, stopping neither to wash nor to reflect.

Tonight, we are free.

Now, we will symbolically wash our hands, without saying any blessing.

As we do so, let’s imagine that we are washing away all anxiety and stress in our lives, and allow ourselves to be filled with the hope that the world can be a better place for us all.

Pass a pitcher, basin, and towel around the table.

Rinse and dry your hands, saying:

Let our telling pour forth like water, strengthening spirits, refreshing souls.
