Handwashing for bread

Shalom Rav,

I know that there are many laws about properly washing hands before a bread meal. For example needing to completely dry hands, holding hands upright etc. Am I wrong in assuming that those laws apply only when one is using the minimum amount of water required to wash hands, and that nowadays since most people use more than 3 times the required amount and wash each hand twice, that in those instances the laws would not apply?


The law of washing each hand twice is only required when using 1 revi’it. If you use two or three times the amount, this isn’t required. The other laws still apply
