En Tohen Ahar Tohen

En Tohen Ahar Tohen
Day: Wednesday
Date: December 3, 2014
Parshat: Vayishlah
Yalkut Yosef: 321

In memory of Ettel bat Harav Chaim Shalom.

"En Tohen ahar Tohen," there is no grinding after grinding. Once an item has been ground, it may be reground on Shabbat even if it has since been put back together. Therefore, it is permissible to crumble bread into small crumbs on Shabbat either for oneself to eat or to feed to ones chickens. However it is best even in this situation to only crumble the bread right before using it. Similarly one may not cut vegetables into very small pieces to give to an animal unless it is to give the animal right away.

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