Halacha - Washing Hands
Submitted by Norma Jacobs  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: We wash our hands after touching any footwear out of concern that dirt and refuse that may have become attached to the shoe will soil our hands. Therefore, the hands must be cleaned well, but it is not necessary to pour water 3 times on each hand.
