Warming Up Liquid On Shabbat

Warming Up Liquid On Shabbat
Day: Monday
Date: June 9, 2014
Parshat: Sh'lach
Yalkut Yosef: 318

Even if one intends to heat liquid until it is warm, and not to the point of yad soledet bo, it is still forbidden to put it in a place where it can potentially reach yad soledet bo. However if one did so anyways, the liquid is not forbidden. The only exception is food for a baby, ill, or elderly person. For such people one may put liquid on the plata as long as he watches it to make sure that it doesn't reach yad soledet bo. If it does, he has transgressed the issur of cooking on Shabbat.

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