Cooking for a Holeh She'en Bo Sakana

Cooking for a Holeh She'en Bo Sakana
Day: Friday
Date: May 29, 2015
Parshat: Naso
Yalkut Yosef: 328

It is permissible to cook hot food for a Holeh She'en Bo Sakana on Shabbat in something that was heated by the sun. (See DSH from June 11, 2014.) This is because cooking with the indirect heat of the sun on Shabbat is forbidden Miderabanan and for such a person it is permissible to do Derabanans. Ordinarily a Derabanan can only be done with a shinuy. However since there are Poskim who hold that with regards to cooking there is no change that is considered to be a real shinuy, it is not necessary to use a shinuy in this situation. If possible however, it should be done with a shinuy anyhow.

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