Washing the hands (from Wikipedia)General basis in Jewish law
The rabbis of the Talmud derived the requirement of washing the hands as a consequence of the statement inLeviticus15:11
And whoever he that hath issue (azav,
ejaculant with an unusual discharge) touches without having rinsed his
hands in water, he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water,
and be unclean until the evening.
I will wash my hands in innocence; so will I compass Thine altar, O LORD.
TheTalmudinferred the specific requirements of hand-washing from these passages.
The general Hebrew term for ritual hand washing isnetilat yadayim, meaninglifting up of the hands. The term "the washing of hands" after evacuation is sometimes referred to as "to washasher yatzar" referring to thebracha(blessing) said which starts with these words.
law) requires that the water used for ritual washing be naturally pure,
unused, not contain other substances, and not be discoloured. The water
also must be poured from a vessel as a human act, on the basis of
references in the Bible to this practice, e.g.Elishapouring water upon the hands ofElijah. Water should be poured on each hand at least twice. A clean dry substance should be used instead if water is unavailable
practice is to pour water on each hand three times for most purposes
using a cup, and alternating the hands between each occurrence; this
ritual is now known by theYiddishtermnegel vasser, meaningnail water. This Yiddish term is also used for a special cup used for such washing.
At meals"Ntillat yadayim" redirects here.
TheBabylonian Talmuddiscusses two types of washing at meals: washing before a meal is described asfirst waters(the Hebrew term ismayim rishonim), and after a meal is known aslast waters(the Hebrew term ismayim aharonim). The first term has generally fallen from contemporary usage; the second term has stuck. The modern term for the former isNtillat yadayim, washing of hands. Washing before meals is normative inOrthodox Judaism.
TheGemarahof theBabylonian talmudcontains
homilectic descriptions of the importance of the practice, including an
argument that washing before meals is so important that neglecting it
is tantamount to unchastity, and risks divine punishment in the form of sudden destruction or poverty.The discussion ofmayim acharonim,
washing after meals, contains a suggestion that washing after meals, as
a health measure, is the more important of the two washings, on grounds
that the salt used as a preservative in food could cause blindness if
the eyes were rubbed without washing.
