Fruits That Fell Off on Shabbat

Fruits That Fell Off on Shabbat
Day: Sunday
Date: December 28, 2014
Parshat: Vayehi
Yalkut Yosef: 322

Fruits that fell from a tree on Shabbat may not be eaten until after Shabbat. In addition, they are also muktzeh and may not be moved. Likewise if one found vegetables on the ground in the garden they may not be eaten until Motzei Shabbat since they may have fallen from the plant on Shabbat. However if one knows for sure that the fruits or vegetables fell off before Shabbat they are not muktzeh and he may use them on Shabbat. When taking such fruits or vegetables he should not take more than one at a time since taking more may constitute the issur of Me'amer, or, Gathering.

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