Hamotzi – Blessing Before Eating Bread
Date Uploaded: 
Monday 9th December 2013

Bread is the staple food of humankind and so before eating it we make a special blessing of Hamotzi, thanking God for bringing forth bread from the ground.
Please note that the beracha (blessing) of 'hamotzi' is always recited prior to starting to eat bread, not just when 'making hamotzi' on Shabbat or Yom Tov.
