Borrowing something which was left in a public place


We have said that one may not borrow an object without the owner's permission.

If an owner leaves an item in a public area, where it is known that others might come and wish to use it, we may assume that the owner permits this type of borrowing. However, the borrower is required to restore the item to its original state when he finishes using it.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 14:4)

Have a great day,
