Washing on Yom Kippur, Part II


Washing for pleasure is prohibited on Yom Kippur, but one must wash his hands in the normal ritual manner upon rising from sleep. One washes each hand in the normal three-part sequence, but only up to the end of the knuckles.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 613:2; Mishneh Berurah 613:3)

May we be inscribed and sealed for a great year,
