Learn the Hamotzi Blessing

Learn the Hamotzi blessing that Jewish people say before eating bread made out of wheat, barley, rye, oats, or spelt flour. (And famously, challah, the special braided bread, on Shabbat!) The name of the Hamotzi blessing, by the way, comes from the Hebrew מוציא “he removes.”

This karaoke video was recorded and painted by kids in the third and fourth grades at Temple Sinai of Oakland.

The words they are singing are:

ברוך אתה ה’ א‑לוהינו, מלך העולם, המוציא לחם מן הארץ.‏
Barukh ata Adonai Eloheinu, melekh ha’olam, hamotzi lehem min ha’aretz.
Blessed are You, Adonai, Who brings forth bread from the earth.
