Women and men, when tearing kriah


We have mentioned that one who is mourning a parent tears all but the lowermost garment he is wearing. This applies to both men and women, but women tear the upper and lower layers in different spots, for the sake of privacy.

(Code of Jewish Law Yoreh Deah 340:11)

Have a good day,
