Chanukah- Is It Permissible To Move The Lit Menorah

Daily Halacha Podcast - Daily Halacha By Rabbi Eli J. Mansour

The Shulhan Aruch in Siman 675 establishes an important Halachic principle: "Hadlakah Osah Misva"-The act of lighting the Menorah fulfils the Misva, as opposed to "Hanaha Osah Misva"-the placement of the Menorah is the Misva. That is, it makes no difference if the Menorah was set up by a minor or others who are exempt from the Misva; one would not have to set it up again. This is also true regarding the Shabbat and Yom Tob candles.There is a discussion amongst the Poskim whether may light the Menorah in one place and then move it to another place. All agree that it is preferable to leave it in the place it was lit. Shulhan Aruch (675:1) clearly writes that the Menorah should not be moved after it was lit, because people will assume that he lit it for his own benefit like a lantern. The Shulhan Aruch also rules that one may not light the Menorah and hold it in his hands for the full half hour. This also appears that he is using it for his own benefit. Based on this, the Ben Ish Hai (Rav Yosef Haim of Baghdad, 1833-1909) ruled that a sick person who is bedbound upstairs should not light the Menorah in his bedroom and then have it brought downstairs to his window. Rather he should appoint an agent to light for him downstairs. Hacham Ovadia writes that today the circumstances have changed. It is not such a severe concern that people will think he is using the Menorah for his own benefit, since we use a special Menorah designated for the Misva. Therefore, even if he moved around with it, nobody would assume that he is using it as a lantern. In the olden days, people used regular candles both for the Misva and for illumination, so it was easy to get confused. Therefore, if one moved his Menorah, his Misva is not invalidated. This is also the opinion of the Mishna Berura in Siman 675. In the case of the sick person, Hacham Ovadia would allow him to light in his bedroom and then have it brought downstairs, but he still prefers the option of appointing an agent. It is also preferable not to move the Shabbat and Yom Tob candles after they have been lit. (Although not preferable, one may move Shabbat candles as long as hee didn't accept Shabbat yet.) Although the Taz (Rabbi David Segal, Poland, 1586-1667) holds that Shabbat and Yom Tob are different, The Hida (Rav Haim Yosef David Azulai, 1724-1806) defends the position of those who equate the two Misvot. The way to remember this Halacha is that the Beracha for all these Misvot is "L'Hadlik"-to light-meaning that the lighting is the Misva. SUMMARYIt is preferable not to move the Chanukah candles after they have been lit, but doing do would not invalidate the Misva..

Daily Emunah Podcast - Daily Emunah By Rabbi David Ashear

The Netivot Shalom writes that the menorah in the Beit HaMikdash would radiate a light of emunah into the hearts of the Jewish People. With that light, it was understood that Hashem was behind everything that took place in the world, and it was that light which the Yavanim tried to destroy. The miracle of Chanukah was the last one before this long galut which we are still enduring. And it carried with it a message from Hashem to us which we must always remember. The Greeks had full control of the Beit HaMikdash. They were seeking to defile every jug of oil there, and there was no one to stop them. But Hashem had other plans. He blinded them from seeing that last jug, because from it He was going to produce the holiday of Chanukah to remind us that He's always with us, and no one can do anything to us unless it's His will. The nerot Chanukah remind us that whatever is going on in our own lives is being orchestrated by Hashem. He's with us, and He's helping us, although it might not always seem that way. If we take the message and internalize that Hashem is with us, it will make our lives so much better. Sometimes, Hashem gives us a “wave”, kavayachol , by showing us how intimately He is involved in our day to day lives. A young couple who are currently living in Israel dedicating their lives to Torah were recently invited to eat out by relatives on Leil Shabbat . The house they were invited to was at least a thirty-minute walk from where they lived, so they decided they would take a taxi there before Shabbat. The young woman told her husband to take forty shekel with him, as that was the regular fee to go where they were headed. Her husband then told her, “It could possibly cost as much as fifty,” and he didn't want to be stuck without enough. She said to him, “Forty shekel is what it's really worth and I have emunah that Hashem will get us a taxi for that price.” This woman learns emunah on a daily basis and is constantly looking to grow in it. Her husband replied, “If we had emunah, we shouldn't need to take any money because Hashem could also get us there for free.” The woman replied, “You're right, but I don't think we're holding on that level yet. Let's just bring the forty shekel because that level we are holding on.” They left their apartment and went down the block to find a taxi. The first taxi driver that came said he couldn't take them because he was going in the other direction. The second one that came also wasn't traveling in that direction. Now the time was getting late, and they really needed to get to their destination. The next taxi that passed by, they flagged down and asked if he would take them to where they needed to go. The driver said, “Of course,” and told them to get in. They then asked him how much he would charge them for the ride. He replied in Hebrew, “ Chinam ,” which means “free”. They couldn't believe their ears. Who ever heard of a taxi driver not charging a customer. The driver explained that he has a custom that the last ride that he does before Shabbat he does as a chesed, and this was his last ride before Shabbat. They offered to pay him after they arrived, but he wouldn't take the money. The couple said to themselves, what are the odds that out of the hundreds of taxis we were going to get the one that would take us for free? It was so clear to them that Hashem was telling them, I heard your conversation and yes, I could take you there for free. This gave them so much chizuk , realizing how intimately Hashem is really involved in their lives. When we look at the nerot Chanukah, let us try to absorb that light of emunah and internalize that Hashem is always with us as well.

Mukse: Moving a Mukse Item for a Permitted Purpose

One of the categories of Mukse is Keli She'm'lachto L'isur-a utensil whose primary function is prohibited on Shabbat. The Hachamim permitted moving such an item only L'sorech Gufo-for another permitted function or L'sorech M'komo-for its place. One example of Keli She'm'lachto L'isur is a sewing needle, as its primary purpose is for sewing which is prohibited. It would be permitted to use it to remove a splinter, L'Sorech Gufo. The same applies to knitting needles. The Poskim define rulers and scales, as Kelim She'm'lachtam L'isur, since it is prohibited to measure on Shabbat. This applies to non-digital scales as well. It is only permitted to use a food scale for the purpose of a Misva, such as measuring Masa or Maror for the Misva on Pesah. Other examples include: calculators, radios and flashlights. Accordingly, if someone wanted to move his clock radio to see the time, it would be permitted, as that would constitute L'sorech Gufo, as long as he is careful not to pull out the plug. He would also be permitted to move the clock radio from the dresser, L'sorech M'komo, in order to make space for something else that he wants to put there. A car is Keli She'm'lachto L'isur. If someone forgot food in the car before Shabbat, he may open the door or trunk to remove the food. This is considered L'sorech M'komo, since the closed door is blocking access to the food, it may be moved out of the way. Of course, this leniency applies only to rare cases in which opening the car door or trunk does not activate any lights or electric circuits. Also, there is no rationale to permit directly closing the door after removing the needed items.Clothes that were left in a closed electric dryer before Shabbat may be removed on Shabbat, assuming that opening the dryer door does not activate lights or electric circuits. Like the car, the leniency is because the door is a Keli She'm'lachto L'isur and opening the door is L'sorech M'komo. It would not be permitted to directly close the door after removing the clothes. Electric fans and electric blankets are Kelim She'm'lachtam L'isur, and may be used as long as they were plugged in before Shabbat. Of course, the dial or button may not be adjusted. It is permitted to move the fan to bring the flow of air closer, since that is considered L'sorech Gufo. Likewise, the fan may be moved so that the flow of air blows away from him, since that is considered L'sorech M'komo. Percolators, crockpots and coffee makers are classified as Keli She'm'lachto L'isur. If they have water inside of them, it is permissible to move them as needed. If not, they may be moved only L'sorech Gufo and L'sorech M'komo, e.g. remove them from the counter if their space is needed.Other examples of Keli She'm'lachto L'isur include:• extensions cords • adapters• scissors• Shabbat timers• nail clippers• fly swatters• regular pens (as opposed to special artist pens or quills which would have a stricter classification.• hole punchers, staplers• umbrellas• hair brush and comb• gardening tools such as hoes, rakes and sprinklersWallets- There is a Machloket (disagreement) between Ashkenazim and Sepharadim regarding wallets. When it has money in it, it is clearly Mukse as a Ba'sees (base) and may not be moved at all. However, if there was no money in the wallet, Ashkenazim are strict since it is designated for money. However, Maran in 310:7 rules that it is permissible. Similarly, an empty Sedaka pouch or an empty case of a musical instrument is also not Mukse.Toothbrush- According to the Poskim that brushing teeth with toothpaste is prohibited, a toothbrush is a Keli She'm'lachto L'isur. Hacham Ovadia has a famous ruling to permit the use of toothpaste on Shabbat, in which case the toothbrush is not considered Mukse at all.

The Shulhan Aruch (308:4) states that a Keli She'm'lachto L'heter-A utensil which has a permitted function, may be moved for any purpose, including its own protection. However, Maran adds a caveat that even such a utensil should not be moved "Shelo L'sorech Klal"-for no purpose whatsoever. That is, one should not fidget with these items for no reason. Maran then lists two exception to this rule: food and holy books. These items may be moved randomly, in any fashion. Some Poskim want to include clothing and jewelry in this category of exceptions, as well. However, Hacham Ovadia in Hazon Ovadia (Vol. 3, p. 34) cites the Me'iri who rules that clothes and jewelry may not be moved randomly.-----Hacham Ovadia (Hazon Ovadia Vol 3, p. 47) rules that a food vessel requiring Tevilah (immersion) in a Mikveh before use, is not Mukse, even though it may not be immersed on Shabbat. He bases his leniency on the fact that some opinions do permit Tevilat Kelim on Shabbat, and even according to the mainstream opinion, the vessel can be given to a non-Jew, which removes the obligation for immersion, and then be used by borrowing it back from the non-Jew. A pot which became non-kosher, which needs Koshering through Hag'ala, is not Mukse. Hacham Ovadia explains that although it may not be koshered on Shabbat, it is still suitable for containing cold food.------There is a question whether one may move a food item which has a questionable Kashrut. For example, there is debate whether powdered milk was included in the prohibition of consuming milk from a non-Jew. Hacham Ovadia was strict on this matter and ruled that such products are not kosher. If one had a chocolate bar made with such milk, would it be Mukse on Shabbat? Hacham Ovadia gives several reasons why it is not Mukse. First, it may be given to a non-Jew or even to young children. Second, the dissenting opinions who do permit the powdered milk of non-Jews may be relied upon in the context of Mukse. ------Hacham Ovadia (Hazon Ovadia Vol. 3, p. 9) rules that stale bread is not Mukse, because it can be consumed in soup on Shabbat. SUMMARYNon-Mukse items may not be moved randomly, for no reason, except for food and holy books.Pots in need of immersion or Koshering are not Mukse. Products made with non-Kosher powdered milk are not Mukse. Stale bread is not Mukse.

One cannot take on a fast of a few hours and call it a fast - it doesn't count in that regard. And separating from a community fast is not acceptable either - so joining in a small part of that fast in solidarity is, however, acceptable. With supports and arguments against this position regarding partial fasts. Including a rule of thumb making sure that one takes a fast upon oneself from the day before. When exactly? It's a machloket, though pegged to the afternoon. Plus, an important turning to Megilat Taanit, as the official calendar of holidays. Also, the case of high quality meat enticing someone who is fasting, and when whether one can break the fast and make it up another time, based on how badly you want to eat it.

Is It Permissible to Touch a Mukse Item Without Moving It?

Daily Halacha Podcast - Daily Halacha By Rabbi Eli J. Mansour

The Shulhan Aruch establishes in several places that it is permissible to touch Mukse items, as long as not even a part of it moves. For example, Maran rules that a corpse is Mukse, and even though a single limb may not be moved, it is permissible to touch it. The Shulhan Aruch (306:6) records the Halacha that covering a Mukse item with a vessel is permitted, only if he does not touch the Mukse itself. The commentaries wonder what the problem is, since it is permitted to touch Mukse. The Maggid Mishne understands that the case is referring to a Mukse item which is round, and touching it will cause the item to roll on its axis. The Trumat Ha'deshen (Rav Yisrael Isserlin, 1390-1460) offers an alternate explanation: Touching Mukse is prohibited in a case where the purpose of the contact is to benefit the Mukse item. The case of placing a protective covering over the Mukse item is for the benefit of the Mukse item, and that is why it is prohibited. Thus, there is a disagreement between the Maggid Mishne and the Trumat Ha'deshen whether one may touch a Mukse item for its benefit. The Bet Yosef brings both positions. The Magen Abraham (Rabbi Abraham Gombiner, Poland, 1637-1682) is stringent in accordance with the Trumat Ha'deshen. However, many Poskim rule in accordance with the Maggid Mishne, including the Vilna Gaon and the Mishna Berura.Hacham Ovadia brings a proof to be lenient from the ruling of Maran who permits anointing a corpse with oil on Shabbat, even though the corpse is being touched for its benefit. This is also the opinion of Teshubot Bene Sion.SUMMARYIt is permissible to touch a Mukse item for its benefit, as long as no part of it will move.

Making a Permissible Item Mukse on Shabbat

The Halacha prohibits "Bitul Keli MeHechano"-neutralizing a vessel from functioning on Shabbat. That is, one may not perform an action that would render an otherwise permitted vessel to be Mukse. The classic example is placing a bowl underneath a hen to catch her egg. The egg is Mukse as "Nolad"-an item that came into being on Shabbat. Once the egg falls in the bowl, the bowl becomes Mukse as a "Basees"-a base for Mukse. Another case would be placing a vessel underneath a lit candle to catch the oil that drips. That oil is Mukse because it was designated for lighting. This is prohibited because when the oil drips on the bowl, it neutralizes the bowl from any other use. The Mishna Berura (Rav Yisrael Meir Kagan of Radin, 1839-1933) discusses an interesting case brought by the Magen Abraham (Rav Abraham Gombiner, Poland, 1637-1682) in which one neutralizes a vessel by "Gerama"-indirect means. For example, if there was a drip of oil from a hanging lamp on to the table. If one placed a vessel under the table, is it permitted to then move the table to expose the vessel and catch the drip? The Magen Abraham rules that it is permitted to do so, because he merely moved the obstacle and the bowl became aligned "automatically." Similarly, the Gemara deals with a case of "Teruma Tehora" (pure gifts to the Kohen), which is not Mukse, and "Teruma Temeah" (impure gifts to the Kohen) which is Mukse, in the same basket. As long as both are in the basket, the basket may be moved. The Gemara permits removing the "Teruma Tehora" on Shabbat, leaving only the Mukse "Teruma Temeah," even though the basket becomes Mukse as a "Basees." This is permitted since, taking out the "good" neutralized the basket only indirectly by leaving the "bad" to remain. This leniency can also be applied to a plate of food which also contains Mukse bones. It is permitted to eat all the food and leave only the bones, even though the plate becomes Mukse. Again, since the vessel was neutralized indirectly it is permitted. This is the conclusion of Hacham Yishak, as well.SUMMARYOne may rely on the lenient authorities and neutralize a vessel from use through indirect means.

Shells and peels of food which are edible, even if only to animals, are not Mukse. For example, the Shemirat Shabbat K'hilhata (Yehoshua Yeshaya Neuvirth, Jerusalem 1927-1913, Ch. 20:27) rules that orange peels, watermelon pits and soft bones are not Mukse and may be handled on Shabbat. He goes as far as to say that even if these items were already put in the garbage, they are not Mukse. On the other hand, there are foods which are Mukse on Shabbat. For example, flour or raw rice are Mukse because they are inedible and may not be prepared on Shabbat. Regarding raw potatoes, the Shemirat Shabbat K'hilhata is stringent, although the Menuhat Ahaba (Rabbi Moshe Halevy, Israel, 1961-2001) was lenient, since they are edible under extenuating circumstances. Similarly, all types of raw meat are not Mukse, since it can be consumed. Therefore, if a woman left raw meat on the counter before Shabbat, she may place it in the freezer on Shabbat. Frozen raw meat in the freezer may be moved, as long as it could be thawed out before the end of Shabbat. Food which is Asur B'hana'ah-forbidden to benefit from, such as Hames on Pesach, is Mukse. Therefore, it is prohibited to handle or rearrange Hames items on Shabbat and Yom Tob of Pesah that have been sold to the non-Jew before Pesah. Similarly, fruit which is Orlah (within the first three years) or food upon which a vow of forbidding benefit has been taken, are also Mukse.SUMMARYWatermelon pits, orange peels, soft bones, raw potatoes and raw meat are NOT Mukse.Raw rice and flour ARE Mukse, as well as food items that are forbidden to benefit from, such as Hames, Orlah and foods upon which there is a vow forbidding benefit.

The Halacha only prohibits moving Mukse with one's hands. However, it is permitted to move any type of Mukse item with other parts of the body, including feet, head, mouth etc. This leniency is known as "Tiltul B'Gufo" and applies to all categories of Mukse. Accordingly, if there is a hundred-dollar bill on the floor, it is permitted to kick it to the corner of the room for safekeeping until after Shabbat. The Shulhan Aruch, in Siman 311, permits using one's body, even when the purpose of moving the Mukse item is for the benefit or protection of the item itself. The Poskim discuss whether moving Mukse with the back of one's hand is also considered using the body, or is it deemed the regular prohibited use of the hands. The Halacha Shelema cites Hacham Bension (Ohr Lesion II) that it's permissible. Nevertheless, he marshals many sources, including from the Rishonim, that the back of the hand is prohibited just like the hand. Therefore, one should be strict and not use the back of the hand to move Mukse.Another question on this matter is whether Mukse items that are normally handled with other body parts, besides the hands, can also be included in the leniency of "Tiltul B'Gufo." For example, is it permitted to kick a Mukse soccer ball? Hacham Ovadia clearly rules that it is prohibited. The leniency only applies when it is not the regular way to handle the Mukse.SUMMARYIt is permitted to move any category of Mukse item, with another part of his body besides his hands, even for the purpose of protecting the Mukse item.

Today’s daf is sponsored by Racheli Mendelson in loving memory of her mother Shoshana bat Shraga feibel and Rivka. “Studying was a big part of her life right until her last moments. She learned Gemara even when women did not think about studying Gemara and taught us to love Torah. May her memory be a blessing.” After connecting a verse from Kohelet 10:10 to rains not coming, another explanation is brought connecting that verse to Torah scholars and the importance of studying properly is stressed, as well as the importance of teacher treating one's students properly. What should be done if the people don't pray properly for rains to come? Who is the right type of person whose prayers will be heard and how important is intent in prayer? God is stricter with those who adhere strictly to God. When the rains are stopped it is likened to labor pains. The Gemara brings three words that are used to describe a woman in childbirth or getting pregnant and rain. One cannot pray for two things at the same time so if there is a famine and a plague, what should one pray for? Why can one not pray for two things at one time? There was a time when fasts were prohibited by the gentile authorities. What did Rabbi Zeira suggest to do when there were no rains? On what basis? Rain is not always a good thing as sometimes it makes things inconvenient for people. Miracles can only happen in a place that is hidden from the eye. Another reason why God doesn't bring the rains is when people say they will give charity, but they don't.

Is religious environmentalism new-age, post-modern and, essentially, incompatible with traditional Judaism? Or is it, rather, retro, a return to Biblical ideals, a re-wedding of the earth on which we live and the religion we all strive to observe on that land? In this biweekly course, we will do a close reading of central texts within Rav Kook's own introduction of his seminal work שבת הארץ/Shabbat Ha'aretz, the very translation of which title will be an early focus of our study! Rav Kook (Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook, 1865-1935) was the first Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of the Jewish community of pre-state Palestine. He was a mystic, scholar and communal leader who had the temperament and interest in straddling the two modern Jewish communities growing in the land of Israel: the piously observant Jew and the new secular “Israeli.” His words continue to confound, illuminate and inspire us nearly 100 years after his death, and he has much to teach us about our relationship to this one, precious world that is our home.

Daily Halacha Podcast - Daily Halacha By Rabbi Eli J. Mansour

The Shulhan Aruch (311:8) introduces the concept in Hilchot Mukse of "Tiltul Min Ha'sad"-indirectly moving a Mukse item. He brings the classic example of pulling a radish out the ground before it takes root. In this action, it is permitted to move the Mukse dirt indirectly through pulling the non-Mukse radish. However, Maran restricts this principle to cases in which the indirect movement of the Mukse is for the purpose of the non-Mukse item, in this case for the radish. The Poskim discuss common applications of this principle, for example, if pistachio shells or olive pits (which are clearly Mukse, since they are not edible even to animals) were left on the Shabbat table. If there was a substantial amount that would constitute a "Graf Shel Re'i"- a repulsive heap, it is permissible to remove the Mukse directly. However, if it was not such an amount, it is prohibited to directly move the shells or pits. The question is whether one may remove them indirectly using a permitted object such a knife to scrape them off the table into the garbage pail. Hagaon Rabbi Zalman (Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, 1745-1812, Russia) holds that using a knife is not considered "Tiltul Min Ha'sad"-indirect handling; it is considered direct handling. Therefore, it is prohibited. This also the opinion of the Ben Ish Hai (Rav Yosef Haim Baghdad, 1833-1909) in the second year, Mikes, where he says that it is prohibited to clean bones off the table neither with his hand or with a utensil. However, on the other hand the majority of the Poskim are lenient, including the Ramban (Milhamot Hashem, Shabbat 48b), the Rosh (4:10). This is how the Taz (Rabbi David Segal, Poland, 1586-1667) and the Mishna Berura (Rav Yisrael Meir Kagan of Radin, 1839-1933) rule. Hacham Bension and Menuhat Ahaba also clearly permits using a knife to scrape off refuse from the table, and this is the accepted ruling. Even if a knife is considered indirect, the question is whether a utensil designed for scraping and cleaning, such a broom, is also considered indirect, or is that considered the direct way of handling the Mukse. The Poskim are lenient and permit using a broom and a dustpan to sweep up Mukse items, for the purpose of cleaning the floor or table. Likewise, it is permitted to roll up a disposable tablecloth with all the Mukse refuse and remove it from the table for disposal.SUMMARYIt is permitted to clean Mukse items off a table or floor indirectly, using a knife, broom or dustpan.

Mukse- If a Mukse Item Gets Mixed Up With Similar Non-Mukse Items

One type of Mukse is "Basees L'davar Ha'asur"- a base for a Mukse item also becomes Mukse. Even if the Mukse item is subsequently removed, the base remains Mukse, as long as the Mukse item was on it during Ben Hash'mashot (twilight) of Ereb Shabbat. For example, if money was placed on a chair on Friday, the chair becomes Mukse, even if a non-Jew removed the money during Shabbat.Hacham Ovadia was asked the following question regarding this Halacha: What is the Halacha if the Mukse chair became mixed in with the other identical (non-Mukse) chairs in the house? Does the concept of Bitul (nullification) in the majority apply to Mukse, as it does to meat and milk? Accordingly, if there were a total of three chairs, then the Mukse chair would be Batel (nullified) in the majority of permitted chairs. However, the principle of Bitul does not apply to "Davar She'Yesh Lo Matirin"-cases in which the forbidden item will later become permitted. The classic case is an egg laid on Yom Tob, which is Mukse of Nolad, that became mixed in one thousand permitted eggs is not Batel, since that egg will become permitted after Yom Tob. Similarly, in the case of the chairs, the Mukse chair will become permitted after Shabbat, and would not be nullified in the mixture. Nevertheless, the Nodeh B'Yehuda (R. Yechezkel ben Yehuda Landau, 1713-1793, Prague) has the famous opinion that the restriction of "Davar She'Yesh Lo Matirin" applies only to food. His rationale is that food is a one-time use; it's eaten and then it's gone. Regarding such items the Halacha requires delaying the one-time consumption to eat it in its permitted state and not while it is still forbidden, since anyway there is only "one shot." However, something like a chair can be used time and time again. Therefore, the Halacha does not require one to miss out benefiting from it on Shabbat. Hacham Ovadia is lenient and relies on the Nodeh B'Yehuda in the case of Mukse, which is M'drabanan, and permits using all the chairs.SUMMARYIf a Mukse non-food item became mixed in with identical permitted items, one may rely on the lenient opinion and use all the items on Shabbat.

Animals are Mukse. Therefore, it is prohibited to pick up a pet, such as a dog or a cat on Shabbat. The Poskim discuss whether it is permitted to pet the hair of an animal, without moving its body. The Be'ur Halacha (Rav Yisrael Meir Kagan of Radin, 1839-1933, 312:11) does not reach a firm conclusion, but he leans towards the position that the hair is different from the body of the animal, even though it is attached. Accordingly, it should be permitted to wipe one's hands on the tail of a horse. Apparently, this distinction between the hair and the body is based on the fact that the whole reason the animal is Mukse is because it is prohibited from use on Shabbat. The prohibition of using an animal only applies to its body, and therefore the Mukse does as well. Just as there was no Gezerah-enactment prohibiting use of the hair, there was also no classification as Mukse. Nevertheless, practically it is difficult to separate between petting the hair and contact with the animal's body. Hacham Yishak Beracha in his book on Mukse (p.86) brings both sides of the argument, but concludes that it is preferable to be strict and not pet animals.SUMMARYAnimals are Mukse, and it is best to refrain from petting them.

Hacham Ovadia discusses different food items that may fall into the category of Mukse. First, he deals with flour. He rules that even though it cannot be used for baking on Shabbat, nevertheless, since it can be mixed with sugar and consumed "as-is," it is considered edible and not Mukse. Similarly, ground coffee (not instant) is also not Mukse, since it can be mixed with sugar and consumed. This is brought by MaHarit Paracci in his Ginat Veradim (OC 3:3).Hacham Ovadia rules that a raw egg is not Mukse. Since some people do eat raw eggs, e.g. to enhance their voice, it is deemed edible and not Mukse. In Hazon Ovadia (3:226) he rules that an egg that has a blood spot in the yellow is still not Mukse. Although it is forbidden to be eaten, it may be given to a dog.The Menuhat Ahaba (Rabbi Moshe Halevi, Israel, 1961-2001) rules that even foods which cannot be eaten without cooking, such as a potato, are still not Mukse, since they can be consumed under extenuating circumstances. Hacham Ovadia disagrees and considers such foods Mukse. SUMMARYFlour, ground coffee grinds and raw eggs are not Mukse. Raw potatoes and other foods that cannot be eaten raw should be considered Mukse.

There is a category of Mukse known as "Mukse Mahamat Hesron Kis"-items that are Mukse because of their value. These items may not be handled for their designated use, because they are prohibited, yet the owner will not use them for any other conceivable permitted use, because of their value. It is prohibited to handle items in this category of Mukse for any purpose- whether for a permitted function, for its place or to protect it. Examples of this category included important documents, such as passports, driver's licenses or a birth certificate. These items are prohibited from use on Shabbat, as they may not be read, and at the same time, they are too important to use for any other permitted purpose. A credit card and bills or receipts that one saves are also Mukse Mahamat Hesron Kis. They are different from a regular sheet of paper, which although is designated a Keli She'm'lachto L'isur, because it is designated for writing, but it may be used for a permitted function or for its place. The Sefer Tiltul Shabbat also includes in this category items which were purchased and one intends to return them. Since they are being designated for return, on will not use it for any purpose, including permitted functions, so as not to lose the opportunity to return it intact. This would be like merchandise which is also Mukse.SUMMARYImportant documents and items designated for return to a store are Mukse and may not be handled for any purpose.
