Removing rings for netilat yadayim


There is great debate as to whether one must remove rings from his fingers before washing for bread.

It seems that if a ring is loose enough for water to pass easily beneath, and if one does not remove the ring in the course of ordinary work, then one may leave it on for washing. However, as a general rule people are strict about this because of doubts as to the standard for looseness of the ring.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 161:3; Mishneh Berurah 161:19)

Have a great day,
