The pourer for Netilat Yadayim


Anyone may pour the water used for hand-washing before eating bread; it need not come from the person who is washing, or even from a Jew.

There is some debate whether it is acceptable to have a minor pour the water, if the minor is under the age of six (and therefore of immature intelligence).

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 159:11-12; Mishneh Berurah 159:70)

Have a great day,
