|Halacha - Answering Amen when in the bathroom|
|Submitted by anonymous Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
Generally speaking one may not answer Amen in a bathroom. the Rema OC 84:1 rules that Amen may not be said in response to any Beracha in a bathroom. However, in 83:4 provision is made that a bathroom that is intrinsically clean is not subject to the general restrictions on a typical bathroom. Presumably most bathrooms today meet the description of the Gemara and Shulchan Aruch. However, many Poskim debate whether this is necessarily so, and it is recommended to refrain.
