Carrying Food in One's Mouth on Shabbat

Carrying Food in One's Mouth on Shabbat
Day: Wednesday
Date: November 18, 2015
Parshat: Vayetze
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 301

In memory of Avraham Asher ben Tzadika

A person who is chewing on food must finish chewing and swallow the food before walking out on Shabbat into a place with no eruv. Going into such a place while one has food still in his mouth is considered carrying. However, it is not necessary to floss one's teeth to make sure there are no pieces of food left. As far the issur of carrying is concerned it is permissible to walk out while still chewing if there is an eruv.

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