Halocho#495 - Eating bread without water

Even when travelling, one needs to wash both hands with a cup of water before eating bread.

If there's water within 4 Km in the direction one is travelling, or 1Km behind one, then one has to go wash one's hands properly.

If one is scared to leave one's travelling companions, or if one cannot find water to wash before eating bread, one can cover one's hands or wear gloves.
