My experience of being Amish for close to 30 years is that Amish refuse hugs from anyone other than their spouse, and even that wouldn't happen in public. But I can't make blanket statements about every Amish community or person.
However when this months issue of the Amish published Family Life arrived in the mail I found it interesting that they addressed the very question I had received.
