# 2508 Know This Like The Back Of Your Hands


Q. Often people pour down water during Netilat Yodaim on the top of their hands over their wrist, to properly cover with water the complete hand. However, as the hands are bend downward into the sink, the result is that often the water reaches the area of the wrist and bellow only on the top side of the hand, but not in the down side. Is that correct?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s opinion is that since lechatchila, on the onset, the complete hand up to the wrist should be covered with water, one should turn around each hand with the downside facing up while he pours water on them. The above is done while each hand is slanted down.
