One Who Realized He's Carrying While in Reshut Harabim

One Who Realized He's Carrying While in Reshut Harabim
Day: Monday
Date: November 16, 2015
Parshat: Vayetze
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 301

In memory of Avraham Asher ben Tzadika

As mentioned previously, in order for a person to transgress the Torah's prohibition against carrying in a place with no eruv the item has to have been picked up outside of the Reshut Harabim and put down inside, or picked up in the Reshut Harabim and carried for four amot and then put down. Stopping is the same as putting it down in this scenario. However, if the item was never put down in the Reshut Harabim he has not transgressed the Torah's prohibition. Therefore, a person who while walking in a Reshut Harabim realized that he was carrying something from a Reshut Hayahid should not put the item down. Putting the item down would be the final step in completing the Melacha. Instead, he should continue to walk without stopping until reaching the Reshut Hayhid and put it down once inside.
