A Window Or Door That Fell Out On Shabbat

A Window Or Door That Fell Out On Shabbat
Day: Sunday
Date: February 2, 2014
Parshat: Titzaveh
Source: Yalkut Yosef: 308

Windows and doors of a building (not of a dollhouse) that fell off on Shabbat are muktzeh since one is not allowed to reattach them on Shabbat. However if they came off on Friday and one intends to use them for a permitted purpose on Shabbat then they are not muktzeh. If a door or other component of a non muktzeh item came off it is not muktzeh regardless of whether it fell off on Shabbat or on a weekday. However it also may not be reattached on shabbat. Clothes that were in the dryer or on the clothesline when Shabbat started may be taken out of the dryer or off the clothesline when they're dry even if the clothes where wet when Shabbat started.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
