Halacha - duchening with arthritis
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

If the Kohen can raise his arms to shoulder height for the duration of Birkas Kohaim he may still duchen even if he cannot separate his fingers in the traditional manner. Even if he is physically incapable of duchening, he is still a Kosher Kohein and may receive the first aliya even when other Kohanim are present.
