From the Rav’s Desk: Saying Shalom in the changing room of a Mikveh

  1. Question: [Sunday, 3rd Adar 2, 5782]

May I greet my friend with the word Shalom inside of the changing area of the Mikveh? Does it make a difference if there are people there who are undressed or not? I did so this morning and someone told me that its forbidden.


It is permitted to say the word Shalom in the dressing room of the Mikveh even when there are people there who are undressed. The prohibition to greet a friend with the word “Shalom” only applies in the shower room.
