In the Bible

You shall make a copper Laver and its base of copper, for washing...It shall be for them an eternal decree, for him and his offspring for their generations.
--EXODUS (30:18-20)

In addition to contributing toward general cleanliness, this washing symbollically removed any impurity peoviding a clean path straight from earth to God in heaven. To emulate the priests from times of old, Jews will wash their hands before taking part in any meal consisting of bread, considered among the holiest of foods. After making the blessing over washing the hands, a new blessing is recited over the bread before enjoying the first bite! With this stunning Scenes of Ancient Jerusalem washing cup, you too can emulate the holiest priests from the times when the Temple stood.
