Borrowing fragile items


We have said that one may borrow an item which is left in a publicly accessible place, where people normally borrow items that have been left out. Of course, one must restore the item to its original condition and position after using it.

However, if the item could easily be damaged during use then one may not borrow it, even if one will be careful.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 14:4)

Have a great day,
