The Morning Blessings-Blessing #7: Clothing

Every morning, a set of 15 blessings is recited to express our thanks to God for all the things that we, as healthy human beings, are capable of doing.

Ba'ruch Ah'tah Ah'doh'nai Eh'lo'hay'nu Melech ha'o'lam malbeesh arumim.

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who clothes the naked.

Do you have a complete wardrobe that keeps you warm in the winter but not too hot in the summer? Do you have the ability to dress with dignity for every occasion? This blessing is your opportunity to say “Thank You God.”
