Paper towel on Shabbat

Question
I’m confused. Can I wipe my hands in paper towel on Shabbat? I wash my hands before daven, and in the shul I usually go, they only offer paper towels to wipe them. Is it preferable to bring my own towel since we have an Eiruv or wipe the hands on my clothes?
Answer
It is permitted on Shabbat to dry ones hands on paper towels. Rabbi Yitzchak Grinblat
