Can a Cohen visit the Gravesite of a Tzaddik Part 2/Can a cohain duchan with blood on their hands

Additional Note: Cohen going to war and duchening, is courtesy of Harry’s rebbe, Dayan Gershon Lopian.

  1. In WWI the British government asked Rabbi Hertz if a Cohen could fight on the front line. R Hertz was Matir on the basis of the Chashmanoim
  2. Rabbi Herzog (who was Rabbi in Paris at the time) disagreed
  3. The essence of the Heter comes from Gemoro in Sotah 47a – where it appears clearly from the Gemoro that even a Cohen Gadol could go to war without any penalty in his rights as a Cohen
  4. R Uziel, here in Israel gives a Heter based on the Sifri in Bamidbar
