Food That Was Cooked Beshogeg On Shabbat

Food That Was Cooked Beshogeg On Shabbat

Food accidentally cooked by a Jew on Shabbat may not eaten by anyone until Shabbat is over. After Shabbat it is permissible for anyone, including the one who made it, to eat it right away. Cooking accidentally means that the person either didn't realize that it was Shabbat, or he knew it was Shabbat but he thought what he was doing was okay. If one was told that something is not allowed and did it anyways that is considered doing it on purpose. If one mistakenly did a melacha on Shabbat because he was wrongly told he may do so by a Rabbi, depending on the situation it is sometimes considered shogeg and sometimes mezid. If the Rabbi is known to be quite knowledgable about the laws of Shabbat it is considered a shogeg. If the Rabbi is not it is considered mezid since he should have known better than to rely on direction from such a Rabbi. The laws of benefitting from a melacha done bemezid or beshogeg apply regardless of which melacha was done and are not only true with regards to cooking.
