Showering & Yom Tov
On Rosh ha-Shana and Yom Tov it is permitted to use hot water in cooking and for drinking. But is it permitted to use hot water for showering? The Shulchan Aruch says no but that was based on the reality that showering was not a normal practice. Join Rabbi Dovid Fink as he surveys the opinions of the poskim and explores the relationship between normal practice and halacha.
In addition to being one of Rabbi Brovender's first students, Rabbi Dovid Fink is an outstanding expertﾠand teacher of Halacha. Rabbi Fink received his Rabbinic ordination from ITRI and the Mir and was awarded his Ph.D in Semitic Languages and Linguistics from Yale University. Rav Fink has taught thousands of students from all over the world for over 35 years.
