Bathrooms & Halacha
Join Rabbi Dovid Fink as he explores all you wanted to know about bathrooms and were too embarrassed to ask. Topics include: What smells prohibit reciting blessings and other acts of kedusha? If the baby’s diaper (nappy) is full, how far away must you be to allow prayer? Can the baby’s diaper (nappy) be changed in the synagogue? If you merely enter and immediately leave a bathroom, must you wash your hands? What is the status of food that was in a bathroom? How can you enter a bathroom if you are carrying a siddur? We will survey the opinions of the great poskim.
