i want to feed into the stereotype that this sort of distinction is why jews made good lawyers but i imagine all religions have this absurd level of specificity. anyway just stumbled on this when someone posted something about an AI Rabbi because AI. i just read and exchange someone generated in AI with Mary I of England.

this pertains to  which prayer to say over bread as opposed to other grain-related offering like cake but the jewiness comes in what i guess are the endless debates over what constitutes what. i am actually familiar with "hamotzee" though honestly cannot recall seeing it in transliteration as it is part of a common prayer that one says before.... i guess eating a sabbath meal. this is not something we would do but it was probably part of breaking bread during any holiday meal celebration. 

Baruch ata Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha-olam, hamotzi lechem min ha'aretz. Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who has brought forth bread from the earth.
