Is Playing With Legos Boneh?

Is Playing With Legos Boneh?

The prohibition against building on Shabbat is called "Boneh". Children may play with Legos on Shabbat. They may build structures and take them apart. This is not considered to be Boneh. One may raise a chair by turning the knob under the seat on Shabbat. One may inject gas into water on Shabbat to make seltzer. If the lens falls out of one's glasses on Shabbat he may not put it back in, even loosely as a temporary fix. If there is a great need and one needs the glasses to learn Torah or to do another mitzvah one may tell a non Jew to put it back.

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