Pesik Resha Delo Niha Lei

Pesik Resha Delo Niha Lei
Day: Wednesday
Date: December 23, 2015
Parshat: Vayehi
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: General Principles in Hilchot Shabbat

There are some poskim who maintain that a pesik resha is permitted if one does not care about or derive benefit from the melacha that occurs. However, we do not follow this view when dealing with a pesik resha that causes a melacha De'oraita to happen. If however, the pesik resha will cause a melacha Derabanan to occur then it is permitted if the person doing it does not want or does not care for the melacha to happen. This is called "pesik resha delo niha lei," a pesik resha that he does not want. If he does want the melacha to happen then it is forbidden even if it is a melacha Derabanan.
