Opening Bottles On Shabbat

Opening Bottles On Shabbat
Day: Friday
Date: February 7, 2014
Parshat: Titzaveh
Source: Yalkut Yosef: 314

One may add water to an ice tray on Shabbat in order to make ice for Shabbat. One may put the tray back in the freezer after use even if he knows that he will not use it anymore on Shabbat. One may open a sealed bottle on Shabbat even though it'll cause the cap to separate from the ring it is attached to. However one who is strict on himself and is careful to open sealed bottles before Shabbat will be blessed. Even if there are words printed on the cap or on the label around the top of a wine bottle one may still tear through them to open the bottle. However here too it is good if one can do it before Shabbat instead. Likewise, food wrappers may also be opened in Shabbat even if that means tearing through letters printed on their surface.

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