Upon awakening

Thursday, 30th May 2019

Upon awakening one should wash one's hands from a cup, alternating between the right and left hand until each hand is washed 3 times.

Two reasons are given:

1) You are starting a new day of serving Hashem (G-d); similar to a Cohen (priest) who had to wash his hands before serving in the Bet HaMikdash (Temple).

2) Part of the soul leaves the body when one sleeps, therefore sleeping is considered a mini-death which generates impurity which needs to be washed away.

One should then wash one's face in honour of one's Maker, since the verse states that man was created in Hashem's image.

One should be careful to dry one's hands and face, for health reasons.

One should also rinse one's mouth, in anticipation of saying Hashem's name during prayers.

On fast-days one may not rinse one's mouth.
