Mayim Achronim: Order of Honor


In Halacha, is there an order of priority for who gets to wash Mayim Achronim first or last? So say multiple people are eating together, and one is a kohen or Levi or Talmid chacham or your parent, do you have to let them wash first (assuming everyone there practices it)? What if you finish eating before them?



  1. No, there is no order of preference for Mayim Achronim.
