Heating Frozen Soup on Shabbat

Heating Frozen Soup on Shabbat
Day: Sunday
Date: August 17, 2014
Parshat: Re'eh
Yalkut Yosef: 318

One is allowed on Shabbat to pour soup from a kli rishon directly onto bread. One also may dip bread into soup which is a kli sheni. One may not put frozen soup onto the plata on Shabbat. Even though the soup is frozen it is still considered to be a "liquidy" food. One may heat meat filled borekas or knishes on Shabbat even though doing so will cause the hardened oil inside to become liquid as it heats up. Ashkenazim however may not heat up such a boreka or knish because of the concern of nolad, causing a new creation or substance. If there is a only a very small amount of oil such that it won't be apparent, then Ashkenazim may heat it up as well.

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