Using a washing cup which has a hole in it


One may use a washing cup which has a hole in it, if the hole is so small or narrow that were the cup placed in water, water would not enter.

One who is stuck may also use a pierced cup that can hold at least a reviit (a little less than four ounces) below the hole, if one washes by pouring water through the hole itself. This is not ideal, though, for some view the entire cup as a broken entity in such a case.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 159:1-2; Mishneh Berurah 159:8, 10-11)

Have a great day,
