Netilat Yadayim

Netilat Yadayim or washing of the hands, is an act which you should maintain throughout your life. You should perform Netilat Yadayim before you get out of bed, before you touch food, and before you go to bed. It is very important to perform this act during holidays when needed, especially during Passover.

How do you wash Netilat Yadayim?
To wash Netilat Yadayim, your hands must be clean. Once you have done this, fill a Smooth-rimmed jug or glass with water, and pour it over your hands. You must pour the water three times on each hand - right, left, right, left, right, left. In this way, we can eat our meals in cleanliness and purity. After washing our hands, we hold them together and say the brachah: Blessed are you, O Lord our God, King of the universe, Who has commanded us about washing the hands.
