Staying up Shavuot Night, Washing in the Morning


Ordinarily, upon waking in the morning one is supposed to ritually wash his hands in the morning:

- 3 times on each hand
- from a cup
- alternating hands Right-Left-Right-Left-Right-Left.

One then recites the blessing of "Al Netilat Yadayim," "On the raising of the hands," before fully drying his hands. (For more detail on this, please email me.) This is supposed to be performed before one does anything else.

However, one who stays awake all night - on Shavuot night or any night - washes his hands and recites that blessing in the morning after using the bathroom.

(Mishneh Berurah 494:1)

Have a great day,
