Bracha After Going to the Bathroom (Asher Yatzar)
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם
גָּלוּי וְיָדוּעַ לִפְנֵי כִסֵּא כְבוֹדֶךָ
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְהֹוָה רוֹפֵא כָל בָּשָׂר
Blessed are You, God, our God, sovereign of the universe, who formed humans with wisdom and created within him many openings and many hollows.
Suggested Discussion Questions:
The words nevakim ("openings," such as your eyes and mouth and anus) and chalulim ("cavities," such as stomach and intestines, etc.) are already in the plural, yet they are repeated twice in this prayer. Why do you think this is? What effect does it have?
