The Morning Blessings-Blessing #9: Standing Tall

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 zokaif k’foo'fim.

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who raises those bowed down.

Stretch! Reach your hands to the sky and feel your muscles tighten and relax? Our physical abilities are certainly not to be taken for granted! Also remember those who are spiritually “bent over,” those who are unable to celebrate their heritage.
