Removing Bones From Fish on Shabbat

Removing Bones From Fish on Shabbat
Day: Sunday
Date: November 2, 2014
Parshat: Vayera
Yalkut Yosef: 319

In memory of Ettel bat Harav Chaim Shalom.

While preparing for, or during the Shabbat meal one may remove bones from the fish. However if the bones are already removed from the fish but are mixed in with other food on the plate, he may not move them to the side of his plate unless he is not able to eat otherwise. Likewise, one may also remove the skin from chicken before eating it. One may pick out larger pieces of chicken and vegetables from soup even if he is only taking them out to eat later. However, smaller pieces that require more effort to remove are considered to be mixed in and should only be removed with some of the liquid, as is the case with a fly that fell into a drink.

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