Using Bar Soap on Shabbat

Using Bar Soap on Shabbat
Day: Tuesday
Date: May 12, 2015
Parshat: Behar/Behukotai
Yalkut Yosef: 326

There are some poskim who do not allow a person to use bar soap on Shabbat and other poskim that do allow it. Therefore if necessary a person may wash his hands on Shabbat with a bar of soap. If possible though, it is proper to be more strict and not do so. A person who does use bar soap even when he has other options does not need to be stopped. Ashkenazim, however are strict in this regard and may only use liquid soap on Shabbat.

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