Do you need to tear kriyah if you go to the kosel for the first time on friday after chatzos? If you’re makneh you clothes to someone else?

Answer:

Being makneh the clothes to others is a good idea for somebody going to the late on Friday, when actually doing keriyah would be complicated.

This has to be done with a proper halachic transfer (kinyan), and a kinyan sudar is the simplest way.

In general, many frown on the idea of “exchanging clothes,” because this gets round the basic obligation of keriyah.

Best wishes and good Shabbos.
