Hand-washing during the meal (abridged)
MBY 173:1-3 Ed: I searched for the equivalent of this siman in the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, but I could not find any reference to it. The topic is one I honestly knew nothing about, but it could be the source of a well-known practice that I have heard of. The issue discussed here is: Does one have to wash his hands between different kinds of foods? This question is divided into at least three parts: 1) between one type of dish, e.g. meat, and another; 2) Between meat and fish; 3) Between meat and milk (or vice versa on 2 and 3.) From what I gather from the Shulchan Aruch and Mishnah Berura, #1 is totally optional, #2 was once obligatory, but is no longer so, and #3 is obligatory. What is also mentioned is that one should not eat fish and meat together, and that one should eat and drink something between one and the other. (Thatís what I meant about the well-known practice.)
