A kohen with a bandage


A kohen may perform birkat kohanim (the blessing of the nation via the kohanim) with a bandage on his hand; this does not disqualify the handwashing preceding the ritual. [Rivivot Ephraim does not discuss whether the bandage would be considered a distraction for the congregation; apparently, he does not believe this is an issue.]

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:94:1)

Have a great day,
