Squeezing Lemons on Shabbat

Squeezing Lemons on Shabbat
Day: Tuesday
Date: November 18, 2014
Parshat: Tolidot
Yalkut Yosef: 320

In memory of Ettel bat Harav Chaim Shalom.

It is permissible to squeeze lemons on Shabbat whether it is into food, drinks, or even into an empty container to mix into food or make lemonade afterward. Even though there are those who forbid doing so, nevertheless, we Sephardim have accepted on ourselves to follow all of the rulings of the Shulhan Aruch and the Shulhan Aruch permits it. If while squeezing lemons onto food some of the pits came out with the juice, he may not remove them. Doing so would be Borer.

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