Dropping Seeds on the Ground on Shabbat

Dropping Seeds on the Ground on Shabbat

Day: Friday
Date: October 9, 2015
Parshat: Beresheet
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 336

In memory of Adam Eliyahu ben Reina.

On Shabbat one must be careful not to drop seeds in a place where they might inadvertently get watered and eventually grow. Doing so is forbidden as part of the prohibition of Zore'ah. However, it is permissible to drop a small amount on the ground in order to feed ones chickens or birds for that day. It is also permissible to drop them in a place where people normally walk since that will prevent them from growing.

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