LAVADO DE MANOS RITUAL –NETILAT YADAIM- CON AGUA DE MAR

Pregunta: La persona que se halla en la playa y desea comer pan ¿puede realizar la netilat yadaim con agua de mar?

Respuesta: Como afirma el Talmud (Yadaim 1,3) el agua salada o por algún motivo amarga a tal punto que no son consumidas ni por lo animales no son aptas para la netilat yadaim. Y así lo dictaminó Maran (Sh. Aruj cap. 160).

Por lo tanto, obviamente no se puede utilizar un utensilio para recoger agua del mar y realizar netilat yadaim

Ahora, existe otro tipo de agua que no es apta para la netilat yadaim y es aquella con la que se realizó alguna tarea o trabajo, por ej. si se utilizó el agua para remojar un alimento y ablandarlo o para enjuagar utensilios, aún cuando el agua permanece totalmente limpia no puede ser utilizada para la netilat yadaim (Sh. Aruj cap. 160 inc. 2).

Es necesario agregar que el agua de mar que pasa por un proceso de desalinización y se convierte en potable puede ser utilizada para la netilat yadaim

De todas formas, las aguas residuales aún cuando fueron filtradas y se potabilizaron no pueden ser utilizada, como en el caso de agua de mar, pues no se trata de corregir el sabor amargo del agua sino que la misma fue utilizada para algún trabajo y esto convierte al agua misma en no apta para el lavado ritual.
