Waiting for rabbi's answer
during the 2nd day of my sheva nekiim days , my bedika cloth looked a little pinkish in color..but really very pale and just around the ends. i gave it to show to my rabbi last nite, before sunset and he never got back to me. Does that mean everything is ok and go about my regular checkings or am i supposed to wait for him to call me back?
Thank you for your question.
You should make every effort to reach your rabbi for his ruling. In the meanwhile, you should continue with your bedikot. Keep in mind that if the questionable cloth is ok, you continue your count. If the questionable cloth is not ok, then the first clean bedikah is your new hefsek and you begin a new count. Please feel free to write back with any further questions.
