Reciting birkat hamazon (the grace after meals, or benching, in the colloquial English expression of the Yiddish term) is the traditional time when Jews come together after a meal to give thanks to God. People often collect benchers from weddings and bar and bat mitzvas, which are made available at the end of the meal for all guests to enjoy.Daniel Laufer and Yitz Woolf, founders of Let's Bench, want to take benchers to the next level.
