Halacha - what do we mean by "bathroom"?
Submitted by renee  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: We have read many of your articles concerning the need to make netilat yadayim after being in a bathroom. Living outside of the USA, we have a bath room, a room with a closet, a shower/bath and a sink. The toilet is in a separate room. Is this the kind of room your articles refer to when the word "bathroom" is written? If not, does going into the kind of bathroom that we (and most Israeli houses) have also leave you with a Ruah Ra'a? Thank you so much for your help! Tizku l'mitzvas! Renee
Answer: The "bathroom" that requires washing is the room containing the toilet.
