Washing For A Meal, Part 1
Dear Rabbi Kaplan, then, the Netilah Yadayim is a ritual to be done before the meal. Does this ritual is to be done at home every time we eat, or is it on a special ocasion at the shul? I am constantly washing my hands, i used to work in health care, therefore, it is a habit for me. But doing it with the cup is different. Wash first, then say the prayer? Thank you for your teachings. I am truly greatful.
