Kli Rishon

Kli Rishon
Day: Sunday
Date: June 15, 2014
Parshat: Korach
Yalkut Yosef: 318

Our Hachamim teach us that a kli rishon (the food that was on the fire or plata) has the power to cook, even after it has been removed from the fire, as long as it is still yad soledet bo . For example, water that was on the fire is considered to be a kli rishon and has the power to cook other food as long as it is still yad soledet bo. Therefore, one may not add more water or put any raw food into such water. Food or drink that is too hot to eat must be considered yad soledet bo and nothing raw may put inside of them. By the same token, if the food is not too hot to eat it can safely be assumed to be cooler than yad soledet bo and thus unable to cook in.

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