Jews usually perform the ritual of hand washing before eating a holiday meal and a blessing is recited after the ritual. During Passover Seder, this ritual is called Urechatz and no blessing is recited. Urechatz is done in preparation for eating Karpas, a vegetable dipped in salt water.
- Prepare a pitcher of water, basin and a towel before the start of seder.
- Do the ritual of Urechatz before eating Karpas. This is done after the recitation of Kiddush over the first cup of wine.
- Pour water twice into both hands to perform the ritual.
- No blessing should be performed while doing the Urechatz. A separate hand washing ritual completed with a blessing will be done later in the seder.
