A Study on the Mealtime Prayers
Mayim Chayim Series
God commands us to bless Him when we eat. Every meal provides us with an opportunity to take time out, acknowledge God, place words of Torah on our tongue and the path of discipleship back under our feet. "Breaking bread" is a Hebrew idiom for having a meal together. The book of Acts teaches that "breaking bread" together was a central part of the practice of the early believers. For believers, every meal should be a spiritual experience.
In Breaking Bread, FFOZ teachers Aaron Eby and Toby Janicki present a clear exposition on the traditional blessings before and after meals. Includes halachah, detailed explanations and an introduction to the table blessings of the early believers.
The commandment to bless God at meals will help you connect with the people of Israel and appreciate the land of Israel while observing the scriptures of Israel.
