Halocho #1018 – Bathing for Shabbat

It's a Mitzva to bathe on Friday with warm water; or at least to wash one's face, hands and feet. It's also a Mitzva to shampoo one's hair, cut one's nails and have a haircut if needed. 

One should not cut finger and toe nails on the same day. 

One doesn't cut [finger] nails on Thursday as then they begin growing (and looking unkempt) on Shabbat.

This week is Shabbat Mevorchim; Rosh Chodesh Shevat will be on the following Shabbat.

Shabbat Shalom uMevorach
