Question
The shaale is.. is tumas ohel metamey even if i’m only machnis an etzbah into the ohel just like if i was nogea to tumah with just an etzbah or do i have to be machnis rosho verubo or an ever shehaneshomo teluya bo etc.?
Answer
Even if a kohen's fingertips or nose enters a room (or often even a building) where there's a dead Jewish body, he is tameh (halachically “impure”), and it's accordingly prohibited (Rambam Tum’at Meit 1, 11).
