Making Soda Water on Shabbat

Making Soda Water on Shabbat
Day: Monday
Date: December 29, 2014
Parshat: Vayehi
Yalkut Yosef: 322

There are some Poskim who do not allow making ice on Shabbat due to the issur of Nolad, creating something new. However, our custom is to allow making ice and even ice cream on Shabbat. Even according to those Poskim who do not allow it, if a non Jew made the ice it is permissible to partake of it on Shabbat. It is permissible to mix powder into water Shabbat in order to add flavor. Likewise it is also permissible to make soda or soda water using Soda Stream and other such products, as long it is being made to drink on Shabbat. If there is some left over after Shabbat it is permitted to drink.

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