Duchening with a prosthetic foot


A Kohen who has a prosthetic foot may perform nesiat kappayim (duchening, blessing the community). Ideally he should remove his shoes, but if this is not possible, or if his lack of biological feet is obvious when he wears socks, then he should wear shoes which do not have laces.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:32)

Have a great day,
