Back of Hand Touching Shoes

Does touching shoes with the back side of my hands or fingers or the part of my arms right above my wrist have the same din as touching them?


If your hands (below the wrist) touch your shoes, even the back of the fingers, this has the same status as the front of the hands.

Best wishes.


The halachah of touching one’s hands is a halachah of the hands (yadayim). Therefore, if any part of the hands touches shoes, they should be washed.

Best wishes.
