Pouring Liquid out of Soup on Shabbat

Pouring Liquid out of Soup on Shabbat

Day: Tuesday
Date: November 4, 2014
Parshat: Vayera
Yalkut Yosef: 319

In memory of Ettel bat Harav Chaim Shalom.

One who has a pot of vegetable or chicken soup etc. that contains more than enough liquid to fully cover the solids by a few inches may scoop out the liquid and leave the vegetables on Shabbat. He may also slowly pour the liquid out of the pot into anther container if he just wants the liquid. However if he is not planning to eat it right away he should stop once the stream is reduced to drops. The reason is because before that point it is reasonable to assume that the liquid coming of the pot was not mixed in with the vegetables (but was on top). However once the liquid starts to come out in drops instead of as a stream it is apparent that that liquid was mixed together with the vegetables. At that point there is a possibility of Borer and therefore it can only be done to eat right away. (See DSH from Monday Oct. 27, 2014 for the definition of "right away").

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